WILDWOOD SANITARIUM AND MEDICAL MISSIONARY INSTITUTE

 

In 1942 Neil Martin, G.B. McClure and W.D. Frazee led in the establishment of Wildwood Sanitarium and Medical Missionary Institute. The various buildings needed in the care of patients and the training of students have been erected by the teachers and students working together. This has been a venture in faith. Many times essential funds have been supplied “in the nick of time” by interested friends. The Wildwood staff believe this has been in answer to prayer.

 

In  1971 a modern hospital building was dedicated to the service of God and humanity. A unique feature is the fact that it was built with private gifts, without any Government funds or church subsidies. While offering general medical and surgical services, it gives special emphasis to preventive medicine and health education. This includes daily lectures and classes in the Institution and a broad program for community health throughout the area. Five-day Plans to quit Smoking, Weight Control Clinics, Cooking Classes and Stress Control Seminars are examples.

 

Inspiring these activities is a philosophy of confidence in the Creator as the source of life not only “in the beginning” but day by day. Through the agencies of nature and sunlight, pure air and water, a balanced diet, exercise and rest, the Creator’s life is imparted to restore the sick and to maintain health. Science and religion blend in teaching that the laws of nature are the laws of God.

 

The “verdant hills of Dade” provide an ideal setting for the Wildwood Institution. Through the wooded areas run miles of trails used as part of the exercise therapy prescribed by Physicians. Gardens, fields, and a beautiful lake supply other opportunities.

    Hello, I was a student (foreign student) at Wildwood in 1974 and I would love to receive news from you at my email. Thanks!

  2. I was also a student at Wildwood when it was only 10 years old. I personally had Elder Frazee give me great cousel. He was a man of God who had power with God. I recall a student becoming very seriously ill from a pimple she’d picked on her lip and it got infected and she was on death’s door and it was considerd life threatening, and a couple hours was what was given her to live. Elder Frazee anointed her and within the hour after the anointing she was totally well! Many miracles took place there. The years were 1950-51. I have often referred to my experience at Wildwood. I have four grown children with families, and they have heard the references often, they also are SDA’s. I took the full medical course they offered doing lab work, massage training, and nurses training. I got no credit officially for it. At that time it was considered unimportant to have degrees or certificates, or diplomas. Dr Harmer was there and taught me a lot. The school homes were fantastic!
    The area missionary outreach was excellent. From there I went to Walla Walla College, overseas to Nigeria,and back home. Then to New York City, Bismark, ND, Texas, Maryland, I am still here.I did earn an MA degree.
    Respects,
    Paul Sr
