GREENEVILLE, TN – A visual reminder of Takoma Adventist Hospital’s core values was unveiled Tuesday, Oct. 3, just inside its main entrance.
A “Creation Wall” was unveiled during a 9:30 a.m. dedication ceremony, featuring several photographs depicting the Seven Days of Creation in the Bible. The photographs are original creations by Scott Swarner of Great Art From Photos.
Carlyle Walton, Takoma’s president and chief executive officer, provided the welcome. Scripture was read from Genesis retelling the Creation Story by several associates as each corresponding photo was unveiled. “How Great Thou Art” was sung by Human Resources Director Jack Lister, while accompanied on piano by Cindy Luttrell, Social Services Director. Donald L. Jernigan, president/CEO of Adventist Health System, gave the closing invocation.
“My motivation for the Creation Wall is that we are a faith-based organization and we believe in our Creator and our Re-Creator,” Walton explained. “He restores health – physical, mental and spiritual. This new Creation Wall will set that tone visually as you enter our hospital. It will remind our patients and their guests that everything we do at Takoma is done to honor God.”
