Compassionatecare ispersonal.

The Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare leads a movement to bring compassion to every healthcare experience.

One of the most powerful ways we advance compassion is by honoring caregivers who provide truly
compassionate care–care that is supportive, respectful and kind.

If you have a caregiver who smiles, listens, and knows you–as a person, and not just an illness–honor them today with a
gift to the Schwartz Center. Your gift will recognize their work, and will advance our mission of bringing
compassion to every patient-caregiver interaction.

Only one caregiver each year is honored with the Schwartz Center Compassionate Caregiver Award. Yet more than 2,000 compassionate caregivers have been recognized since 2008 by grateful patients and families who make a donation to the Schwartz Center in their name.

The Honor Your Caregiver program celebrates the thousands of acts of compassion, whether modest or exceptional, rendered every day by caregivers of all kinds.

By donating to the Schwartz Center, grateful patients express their gratitude while giving more people the opportunity to experience compassionate care.

Join us. We are leading a movement to bring more compassion to every patient-caregiver interaction. We help caregivers practice compassion every day. We honor caregivers for all acts of compassion whether large, small, heroic or humble.

Honor a compassionate caregiver with a donation to the Schwartz Center. We’ll add your caregiver’s name to our Compassionate Caregiver Honor Roll, and for a gift of $100 or more, we will also send a Compassionate Caregiver certificate on your behalf. Make your thank you count! Join the movement to bring compassion to the heart of care.
