Patients also reported an increase in satisfaction with their hospital experience.

Urban Zen Integrative Therapists started in Southampton Hospital’s Ambulatory Surgery Unit in 2010, and four years later our therapists are present on clinical floors in the hospital. UZIT’s have also given pre-operative care to breast cancer patients along with weekly classes for survivors of women’s cancer. Here is a selection of testimonials from people at the hospital who have witnessed the benefits of the UZIT program.
