Keith Myers, previous President & CEO of Montefiore, Beachwood, OH, presently President & CEO of MorseLife Health Care, West Palm Beach, FL
“In 2001, I had the pleasure of meeting Judy McCracken, a REIKI Master at Montefiore. After she explained the principles of REIKI and the ways it could help the elderly, I felt strongly that a holistic approach needed to be a part of the services that we offered at Montefiore. As I gained more exposure to REIKI and saw the continued benefits on our resident population, I embraced this alternate care method at an even greater level. I had an innate feeling that it needed to be part of the Hospice Program to ease pain and distress and part of the Dementia Unit to provide a sense of calm, especially for residents experiencing “Sundown Syndrome.” I thought that this association with REIKI would help position Montefiore as a premier organization in the country. With that goal, I wanted Judy to start testing the validity of REIKI on different patient populations and to use Montefiore to train new REIKI masters. I believe strongly that the successes that were experienced during my tenure at the helm of Montefiore were due to the great energy that REIKI brought to the organization.”
