This December, CRICO would like to deliver our Safety Salute to The Schwartz Center.
The Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare is dedicated to supporting health care providers and helping them deliver compassionate care. We have long been supporters of the Schwartz Center Rounds which became especially important in Boston after the Marathon Bombing. The Schwartz Center Rounds offer a safe place where health care providers can openly discuss the stresses, emotional issues, and other “human dimensions of medicine.”
Tweet a congratulations to the Schwartz Center for all that they do.
