Center for WorkLife Wellbeing

Wherever you work in health care, you are exposed to experiences your friends and family members in other industries may not face. Whether on the frontline caring for patients or doing the important work that makes high quality patient care possible, you may find yourself facing challenges you never anticipated, or encountering frustrations you’d like help facing.

To support this mission, we provide: A variety of proactive and responsive wellbeing services including mental health services, peer support, OASIS rooms, PAWS to Destress, Thank You Project patient gratitude events, and more.
