Spirit of Caring

It's about creating culture change and delivering health care that is putting patients first.

The Spirit of Planetree Award honors individuals who are recognized for their personal commitment to providing patient-centered care. 

Although the phrase "patient-centered care" is defined and used in a variety of ways, the essential theme is the importance of delivering healthcare in a manner that works best for patients. In a patient-centered approach to healthcare, providers partner with patients and their family members to identify and satisfy the full range of patient needs and preferences.
