Jesus on a Hospital Door

The door has been relocated to a display case on the righthand side, as soon as you enter the hospital's main entrance.

Jesus on a Hospital Door

The front desk lady, who was very friendly, had no idea what we were talking about. She directed us to the prayer room, then, when we did not find said door, we wandered the hospital for a little bit. We checked the second floor as well. The front desk clerk called someone who had been employed at the hospital for a while and said there also was no chapel. Darn! The prayer garden was pretty though.

The door is on the first floor, just beyond the lobby, and serves as the Chapel door. Definitely worth a look, but it does have a protective sheet of plexiglass over it that glares a lot when photographed. Hospital Information person was very helpful with exact directions.

Jesus On Hospital Door

We were amazed with this attraction. The face jumped right out to me. It took my wife a minute to make out the face. The kind gentleman who escorted us to the door said he had never seen it so vividly as he did with us. He said he has been volunteering for over 12 years.

Moving the door back and forth on its hinges will enhance the image. The room the door is on is now, rightfully, a prayer room.

I was expecting something rather "hokey." But, this is the real deal!

Jesus On The Hospital Door

After an inspection of multiple doors in the hospital, we can confirm that this door is unique. Unfortunately, Jesus is only mildly photogenic, partially due to a sheet of graffiti-proof plastic over the door.
