In 2016, GNYHA entered into a collaboration with the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare to promote and support the Schwartz Center’s mission. Founded over 20 years ago by Ken Schwartz, the Schwartz Center promotes compassionate patient care by supporting healing relationships through its signature Schwartz Center Rounds™ conducted by and for health care staff. Forty-seven GNYHA members have implemented the Schwartz Rounds, including 18 institutions that became Schwartz Center members as a result of the GNYHA-Schwartz Center collaboration.
