Celebrate Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month

I wrote last year about Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month and this year it here again. Patient-Centered Care is explained more fully HERE.

I will be writing more about patient-centered care throughout the month. For a list of the rapidly expanding Planetree Network check out Especially notice the ones with the Planetree Designated Hospital logo - So far, Sharp Coronado is the only hospital in California to be recognized as a Designated Planetree Patient-Centered Hospital. Planetree has been a pioneer in personalizing, humanizing and demystifying the health care experience for patients and their families. Of course, Mid-Columbia Medical Center is also a Designated Planetree Patient-Centered Hospital, and was the first hospital in the world to implement the Planetree philosophy of patient-centered care facility wide. Watch this video below from Sharp and celebrate Patient-Centered Care Awareness Month!
