Our Mission

 

To nourish a culture of wellbeing for AdventHealth physicians, advanced practice providers, and their families through personal counseling and educational programs.

Guiding Principles

 

All of our services and programs are based on three reciprocal domains of wellbeing, developed by Stanford WellMD: Personal Resilience, Efficiency of Practice, and Culture of Wellbeing. This model illustrates the strategic priorities of the CPW, using the metaphor of “mind, body, and spirit,” or in other words, whole-person care.

Personal Resilience (Mind)

Caring for others inevitably drains the energy of every physician. Utilizing practices that restore personal energy, engagement, and wellbeing are crucial. 

Efficiency of Process (Body)

Our services are guided by research findings and recommendations for effective organizational functioning. We strive to assist physicians and departments in creating a more positive work environment through team building, efficiency improvements, cultural sensitivity, and overall processes. 

Culture of Wellbeing (Spirit)

A healthy organizational culture in a hospital or healthcare facility must intentionally nourish and support the sanity and humanity of the physicians who serve that organization. Such a culture creates a sense of belonging and a palpable knowing within every caregiver that “the work we do together makes a difference in our own lives, and in the lives of those we serve.”
