|When we're seriously ill, our health systems focus on delivering great medical
care. But what about our personal care? Are we getting the emotional, spiritual and psychological support we need? Does our medical care reflect our cultural beliefs and our lifestyle priorities?
At Providence Little Company of Mary, we believe there is a highly personal
side to health care that often gets overlooked. To ensure that people receive
the best care possible, we deliver whole person care. This is health care
based on personal values, as well as medical needs.
Join us for a FREE three-part series exploring how we strive to deliver whole
person care and how you can ensure you and your loved ones get the best care possible. Feel free to join us for one, or all of the events in the series.
