The Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare and the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes’ Foundation are working toward an affiliation to create a comprehensive organization. Together, we will drive our healthcare system forward in supporting its most valuable resource: its workforce. We must change our healthcare system to better protect the well-being of the health workforce, so they can deliver high-quality, compassionate patient care.
