Rose Medical Center Launches Partnership with Temple Emanuel

Denver, Colo. – January 11, 2018 – Rose Medical Center is excited to announce a unique two-year partnership with Temple Emanuel, the largest and oldest synagogue in the Rocky Mountain region.

Themed “The Healing Power of Music,” the partnership will focus on the connection between spiritual healing through music and music’s connection to physical healing and wellness.

“Temple Emanuel is a staple of the community, both around Rose and throughout Denver,” says Ryan Tobin, Rose Medical Center President & Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited to have this opportunity to partner together to provide meaningful experiences to their members and the whole community.”

This unique partnership will incorporate a Scholar-in-Residence Weekend on Music and Wellness series, a series on Healing Your Heart cardiovascular education, a theme on mindfulness and its impact on one’s health, and Wellness and Worship, a healing worship series, combining liturgy, poetry, meditation, and other modalities; created and facilitated jointly by clergy from Rose Medical Center and Temple Emanuel.

“We are delighted to be both honoring and partnering with Rose Medical Center,” stated Joseph R. Black, Senior Rabbi of Temple Emanuel.  “For many decades, Rose has been an integral part of the Jewish Community – from the days when Jewish Hospitals were an unfortunate reality due to anti-Semitism to today when Rose has become a vital part of the lives of many members of our community who go there to find compassionate and professional care.  We are truly fortunate to have Rose in our community and are thrilled to be partnering with them.”

The relationship will kick off at Temple Emanuel’s annual fundraising concert taking place on Saturday, January 27, 2018, and featuring renowned Jewish artist Peter Himmelman. Rose, including Rose physicians, staff and leaders, will be honored at this special event.  More information about the concert and tickets is available at Temple Emanuel's website
