Proclamation for Patient-Centered Care
To Commemorate Patient-Centered Care Awareness we proclaim to our patients and community these truths, which we hold to be self evident:
A patient is an individual to be cared for, not a medical condition to be treated
Each patient is a unique person, with diverse needs
Each staff member is a caregiver, whose role is to meet the needs of each patient
Our patient's family and friends are also our partners and we welcome their involvement
Access to understandable health information is essential to empower patients to participate in their care and it is our responsibility to provide access to that information
The opportunity to make decisions is essential to the well-being of our patients. It is our responsibility to maximize patient's opportunities for choices and to respect those choices
Our patient's well-being can be enhanced by an optimal healing environment, including access to music and the arts, satisfying food, and complementary therapies.
In order to effectively care for patients, we must also care for our staff members by supporting them in achieving their highest professional aspirations, as well as their personal goals.
Patient-centered care is the core of a high quality health care system and a necessary foundation for safe, effective, efficient, timely, and equitable care.
Serendipity Wellness Center Services exists to serve our patients and our community. We are honored to be here for you.
