Exploring the human side of patient care

What makes Emerson Hospital truly special is the compassionate care you receive from our experienced physicians, nurses and clinicians. Our team recognizes that each individual is unique—and we are dedicated to personalizing your treatment accordingly. After all, the most leading-edge technology is nothing without a human touch.

Our nurses are your advocates

Emerson’s nursing professionals have one guiding philosophy: To make a difference for you and your loved ones through excellence in care. We do this by:

  • Providing competent, individualized care in a professional, respectful and caring way
  • Promoting excellence in practice through ongoing education, innovation and research
  • Collaborating with our peers and interdisciplinary team to promote optimal outcomes
  • Engaging in a positive environment to facilitate care and demonstrate respect for all

Every day, our nurses recognize the mission to make a difference, to touch, to guide patients through their journey at Emerson Hospital.

Learning through Schwartz Center Rounds

Another example of our high standard of care is Emerson Hospital’s Schwartz Center Rounds, which aim to improve the relationship between caregivers and patients by:

  • Exploring the human dimension of health care
  • Enhancing communication among caregivers
  • Promoting teamwork among caregivers
  • Providing support to caregivers
  • Giving caregivers knowledge and insight into the non-clinical aspects of patient care

Caregivers focus on the social, emotional and personal aspects of patient care, giving them a greater insight into making a strong personal connection with you, the patient. The multidisciplinary forums include physicians, nurses, social workers, psychologists, physical therapists, clergy and Emerson administration and support staff.

The Schwartz Center Rounds promote a health care system where caregivers are compassionate, engaged and able to address a patient’s medical and emotional needs. For more information, please visit www.theschwartzcenter.org.
