The Pulse of Providence May June 2014

May / June 2014 Our Call to Action—Healthcare that Works, Healthcare that is Safe and Healthcare that Leaves No One Behind TEAMPROVIDENCE: It’s All About People by Jonathan Ford, VP Leadership Formation In our last issue, we introduced seven descriptors of person-centered care. You’ll recall these included:  Welcome Me  Respect Me  Include Me  Connect Me  Protect Me  Engage Me  Comfort Me As members of TEAMPROVIDENCE, we are making a sacred promise to support individuals’ lifelong health and well-being through holistic, coordinated care models and resources, based on trusted, committed, person-to-person relationships. This is person-centered care! Ultimately, we are here for our patients and their loved ones—those who trust their lives into our hands. While person-centered care certainly focuses on our patients & guests . . .it actually goes beyond them to include our physicians, volunteers, and associates. When we practice these seven descriptors among ourselves, we ultimately will be extending those descriptors to our patients & guests along the way. u  Click Here to continue TEAMPROVIDENCE: It's All About People In this Issue: Healthcare that is Safe u  Letter from the President u  Associates of the Year Associate Banquet u  Notes from Sister C u  Blood Drive u  Chaplain's Corner u  Volunteer Voice u  Associate Picnic u  Administator Spotlight u  Town Hall Meetings u  Foundation High Tea u  John Sheehy Recognized u  Style Show Thank You u  Corporate Compliance Corner The Pulse of Providence is designed exclusively for our associates and friends: Ascension Health A Small Gift of Green Creates Big Smiles at Providence Park Healthcare that Works Also in this Issue: Greeted at the Door by Service of the Poor, Reverence, Integrity, Wisdom and Creativity Welcome to Team Providence A Closer Look: My Chart Providence Chosen to Continue Initiative to Improve Breastfeeding Rates Act F.A.S.T!
