Innovative Member Programs Advancing Compassion and Teamwork

The Corman IMPACT Honors celebrates Schwartz Center healthcare members who are making a transformational impact by creating programs or initiatives that promote compassionate, collaborative care within their organization or system.

We know that leading by example is the most effective way to inspire others to make compassionate care a priority and we want to recognize our healthcare members who are doing that.

The Corman IMPACT Honors are made possible through the generous support of Steve Corman in memory of his late wife, Betsy. Please read the heartfelt message from Steve below:


Dear friends,

I understand the power of compassion firsthand. Between five cancer diagnoses and three end-of-life journeys, including my late wife Betsy’s, we experienced the same kind of healing that inspired Ken Schwartz to establish the Schwartz Center. We were able to meet many caregivers over the years who took the extra time to understand us as people, not just as patients and family members.

As someone who has been both a beneficiary and advocate of compassionate care, I believe we cannot afford to let compassion be a nice-to-have. It must be a core value in every patient-caregiver interaction and in our nation’s healthcare system.

 After Betsy lost her battle with cancer, I wanted to underwrite the IMPACT Honors as a tribute to her, and to reflect my belief that leading by example is the most effective way to inspire others.

The Corman IMPACT Honors celebrates the Schwartz Center’s healthcare members who are making a transformational impact by creating programs or initiatives that promote compassionate, collaborative care within their organization or system. I hope that recognizing these efforts will accelerate the adoption of similar or new innovative programs, making compassionate care a priority at every healthcare organization.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to help recognize your commitment to compassion, not only because you deserve it, but because we need more of it.

Sincerely,

Steve Corman
