Purpose and PhilosophyEdit
The Saint Bridenbrad Clinic exists as an outreach ministry of the Clergy of the Holy Light. As such, it endeavours to minister to the health needs of any who come seeking it, regardless of race, class or creed. The St. Bridenbrad healers seek to extend the Light's mercy to all who ask. They consist of Light Healers, Surgeons, Medics, Nurse/assistants, and Apothecaries.
All who serve within the St. Bridenbrad Clinic must be a member of the Clergy, and able to devote their time and resources to it.
The Clinic is both stationary and mobile. It is stationary in the sense that, if anyone comes to the Cathedral seeking medical aid, any Clinic healer who happens to be in the vicinity should immediately respond to that need.
The Clinic is mobile in the sense that if the Clergy members are going to take part in a potentially dangerous task, a field hosptial will be mobilized with necessary medical supplies and personnel to tend to any needs that occur. Any allied guilds and organizations who would utilize the Field Hospital work of the Clinic, may request the attendance of the St. Bridenbrad Healers, with the approval of the Clinic Director and the Bishop.
Additionally, the Clinic shall take part in the Clergy's Charity work. A medical station may accompany Clergy members as they travel to impoverished areas and hand out food and clothing, and the Clinic would offer healing as an added form of outreach.
In the end, we serve the Light, and the people who come seeking physical wholeness. And so it is our prayer that in filling their needs the Light may touch all those who we touch, and heal all their needs, both physical and spiritual.
For although we are not always able to save a life from being extinguished, we, servants of the Light, are never abandonded by it. It lives in us and through us, and in the end, it redeems us as it's own. Even in the deepest of pits, the Light is deeper still. The Light is with those who serve it, whether patient or healer, so be encouraged.
For the faithful patient shall be healed by the Light or comforted by it in death, and the faithful healer will be transformed forever by being it's instrument of healing and comfort.

The St. Bridenbrad Medical Clinic was recently revived by the Clergy of the Holy Light, under the appointed direction of Dr. Feleina Naylor, Chief Medical Director. Before the Clinic could be organized and staffed, a devastating plague hit and quickly swept over the countryside, causing acute symptoms which often resulted in death of it's victims within an hour of contracting the disease. The Clinic quickly set up a field hospital in the evacuated Stormwind Orphanage, staffed by Doctors, medics, volunteers and the best plague specialists from around the area.
The Clinic was instrumental in treating the sick and developing a vaccine, unfortunately it was bombed on the day the vaccine was to be released to the public. Dr. Naylor and other staff members survived the bomb, whose sole purpose was to spread a mutated strain of the plague, but they became ill and the Clinic had to be temporarily shut down as a result.
It is ironic, but perhaps fitting, that the Clinic, who is named after Crusader Bridenbrad who gave his life while rescuing his comrades from the forsaken and then died from the plague as a result, was "baptized" by plague while in it's infancy, and nearly devastated by it. However, it arose from the ashes and will serve again.
Many heroic deeds were done by the Clinic Doctors, researchers, and volunteers during the plague, some self-sacrifical, as they ministered to plague victims and comforted the dying. Some lost loved ones in their fight, some lost their own lives. May their brave spirits inspire us all.
