Riassunto: The inspiring and hilarious story of Patch Adams's quest to bring free health care to the world and to transform the way doctors practice medicine

· Tells the story of Patch Adam's lifetime quest to transform the health care system

· Released as a film from Universal Pictures, starring Robin Williams

Meet Patch Adams, M.D., a social revolutionary who has devoted his career to giving away health care. Adams is the founder of the Gesundheit Institute, a home-based medical practice that has treated more than 15,000 people for free, and that is now building a full-scale hospital that will be open to anyone in the world free of charge. Ambitious? Yes. Impossible? Not for those who know and work with Patch. Whether it means putting on a red clown nose for sick children or taking a disturbed patient outside to roll down a hill with him, Adams does whatever is necessary to help heal. In his frequent lectures at medical schools and international conferences, Adams's irrepressible energy cuts through the businesslike facade of the medical industry to address the caring relationship between doctor and patient that is at the heart of true medicine.

All author royalties are used to fund The Gesundheit Institute, a 40-bed free hospital in West Virginia. Adams's positive vision and plan for the future is an inspiration for those concerned with the inaccessibility of affordable, quality health care.

Today's high-tech medicine has become too costly, impersonal, and grim. In his frequent lectures to colleges, churches, community groups, medical schools, and conferences, Patch shows how healing can be a loving, creative, humorous human exchange--not a business transaction.

From the Back Cover: HEALTH / BIOGRAPHY

"Patch Adams’s book ought to be required reading for patients, doctors, and ordinary mortals of all kinds. I have learned from Patch the courage it takes to be different and to reveal your wounds: behind his clownlike persona lies a great deal of wisdom, and it often falls to the court jester to speak the truth that those in power need to hear."
--Bernie Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine and Miracles

"At last, Patch Adams has put on paper his vision of patient-centered health care--a vision that has inspired so many over the years. Patch’s “crazy dream” is, in reality, the root of what good health care should be all about and too often isn’t. Any health care professional who reads Gesundheit! will come away with a renewed sense of mission and joy about what they do."
--Rick Wade, Sr. Vice President, The American Hospital Association

Meet PATCH ADAMS, M.D., a social revolutionary who has devoted his life to giving away health care. Doctor, clown, man of many hats, Adams is the founder of the Gesundheit Institute, a home-based medical practice in West Virginia that has treated more than 15,000 people for free. Whether it means putting on a red clown nose for sick children or taking a disturbed patient outside to roll down a hill with him, Adams does whatever is necessary to help heal. In his frequent lectures and performances at medical schools and international conferences, Adams’s irrepressible energy cuts through the businesslike facade of the medical industry to address how the need for a caring relationship between doctor and patient is at the heart of true medicine.

This is the story of Patch Adams’s lifetime quest to transform the healthcare system. Gaining supporters across the country, the Gesundheit Institute will soon build a free, full-scale hospital that will be open to anyone in the world. Ambitious? Yes. Impossible? Not for those who know Patch.

Patch Adams’s amazing story seems like the stuff Hollywood movies are made from--and it is. But for those who loved the movie Patch Adams and want to know the whole story that inspired it, Gesundheit! is just what the doctor ordered.

A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be used to fund Patch Adams’s Gesundheit Institute, a hospital devoted to free health care.
