2013 Annual Report

Message from Executive Director Julie Rosen

Julie Rosen

For the past 18 years, the Schwartz Center has supported, educated and trained doctors, nurses and other caregivers to be compassionate. Today, we reach over 100,000 caregivers a year in more than 350 healthcare institutions and organizations throughout the United States.

In 2013, we launched a new membership program, which allows our member healthcare institutions to receive a variety of benefits, including access and support to conduct the internationally-recognized Schwartz Center Rounds® and Schwartz Center Connections® programs, networking opportunities, and educational offerings designed to create more compassionate healthcare organizations.

In 2013, we also developed our Call to Action to create a groundswell of support for compassionate care. I encourage you to add your name to the list of the more than 800 people who have already signed on.

Because of you, we are ensuring that compassion and human connection are as valued as clinical expertise and cutting edge technology. We invite you to take a few minutes to learn more about us and the people and activities that made 2013 a landmark year for the Schwartz Center—and see a list of our annual donors and campaign donors. We’re thrilled that you continue to be with us on this journey!
