Power to Heal Campaign

Express gratitude to your fellow healthcare heroes!

 

As a way to continue growing our culture of gratitude at MedStar Health, we invite you to participate in this year’s campaign by sharing kind words with fellow healthcare heroes. Caregiver burnout, especially in light of COVID-19 this year, has taken a toll on all of our healthcare associates. This year’s Power to Heal Campaign will support associate well-being initiatives.

 

This year’s campaign will support the Associate Well-being Initiatives across MedStar Health. This includes:

  • Expanded “recharging” stations, restorative spaces that are available to all associates to rejuvenate, meditate, gather resources, and receive support from a wellness representative
  • Enhancing wellness rounding to check-in on associates providing resources, information on self-care, and immediate assistance
  • Giving peer-to-peer services that provide real time attention and well-being resources from a trained wellness committee member
  • Offering virtual services designed for MedStar Health associates working remotely
  • Ensuring streamlined access to mental health resources

It's how we treat people. For us at MedStar Health, this includes not only our patients, but also YOU—every associate working to provide their care.

We also know that this work is difficult, exhausting, and can take a toll on you and your families, especially in the current moment. Around the country, we have seen an increasing level of stress and burnout in all healthcare workers. We recognized the profound need to put together well-being initiatives specifically designed to support our teams.

Recently, we had an associate reach out to our team with concerns about feeling overwhelmed. She was considering quitting her job at MedStar Health—a job she loved. After several sessions with one of our peer supporters, she began to feel better. As she wrote to our team: ‘You're the reason I ended up staying.’ Stories like these are why we continue to offer and grow these initiatives.”
