The hummingbird is one of life's tiny miracles, just like our patients.
A hummingbird's heart beats faster than any other bird. Its wings fly in the shape of a figure eight, the symbol of infinity. Hummingbirds are magical, mystical, and make our world a more beautiful place.
In Native American traditions, the hummingbird has represented a messenger between worlds, helping to maintain the balance between nature and spirit. It is a creature that opens the heart and teaches others to appreciate the magic of being alive. The same lessons can be learned from the patients we are privileged to care for.
