The Impact of Supporting Schwartz Rounds® at Healthcare Organizations

Schwartz Center programs, such as Schwartz Rounds, have a profound impact on patients, physicians and the philanthropists that support them. Learn how Dr. Robert Schwab, Chief Medical Officer at Texas Health Resources, partnered with hospital leadership, and philanthropists Lynne and Alan Moffatt, introduce Schwartz Rounds at Texas Health Resources. After an initial gift to support the program at two Texas Health sites, the Moffatts, Dr. Schwab, and hospital leadership were so impressed with the program’s impact, that the Moffatts generously agreed to increase their gift to spread Schwartz Rounds across the system, providing critical support for Texas Health Resource caregivers who bring compassion and empathy to their patient relationships every day.
