Description

On Thursday, November 8, 2018 the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare will host its 23rd Annual Kenneth B. Schwartz Compassionate Healthcare Dinner. The Schwartz Center is a national nonprofit leading the movement to strengthen and sustain the human connection at the heart of health care. To support this mission, we will have a Grab Bag Drawing during our event. 

 We would be honored to include your organization among the many other local businesses that are supporting this event. Would you consider donating [a] gift certificate(s) or other appropriate contribution? We will highlight your tax-deductible donation during the reception.

The Schwartz Center’s annual dinner is considered the healthcare event in Massachusetts and we are expecting more than 1,500 guests to join us this year. The proceeds from this event support innovative programs that advance compassionate care, recognize and honor outstanding caregivers, and make compassionate care a national priority.   More than 610 healthcare organizations in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Ireland, New Zealand and Australia are Schwartz Center members. Together, we are helping more than 288,000 healthcare professionals provide compassionate care to millions of patients.

The Schwartz Center reflects the vision of Ken Schwartz, a Boston healthcare attorney who died of lung cancer at age 40.  Ken’s personal legacy is one of caring, trust and mutual respect between patients and caregivers at all stages of illness.  In an article published in the Boston Globe Magazine, Ken wrote, “Each one of us, if God forbid we get a serious illness, is entitled – and deserves – the best possible care, not just of our body but of our spirit and our soul.”
