The Schwartz Center’s Healing Healthcare Initiative (HHI) provides leaders of healthcare organizations with guidance and support to ensure the care they offer is relationship-based, compassionate, safe and effective. It will give healthcare leaders the cohesive framework and practical resources they need to build a culture of resilience and inclusion at their organizations. It will empower leaders to recognize, remedy and prevent psychological distress and stress-related injuries among their staff. And it offers our leaders the support they need themselves.
