A small church consecrated in honor of Panteleimon the Healer and Luke, Archbishop of the Crimea known for its works on madicine is arranged on the premises of St. Luke (Voyno-Yasenetsky) municipal hospital. The parishioners call this church a place where their bodies and souls are healed.
Tambov people cherish the memory of saint archbishop and confessor Luke. During the years of the World War II Valentin Felixovich cured the wounded in Tambov hospitals not only physiclly but spiritually as well. To commemorate his deeds, Tambov municipal hospital №2 was named after Archbishop Luke in 1993.
The whole complex of city attractions associated with the saints known for their acts of healing is arranged on the territory of the hospital. There are two monuments: one to the medics of the World War II and another one – to Archbishop Luke. Tambov museum of the history of medicine with an exposition devoted to the archbishop is located just nearby. But the church of Panteleimon the Healer and Luke, Archbishop of the Crimea takes is the dominant attraction.
By its architectural plan it represents a small cubic building with a three-flange finish to the facades and a vast semi-circular apsis. The dome is fixed on top of the two tapering tholobates. The church was consecrated in 2010 and since then its doors are open every day. Despite its small size, all possible Orthodox ordinances are carried out here.
