Frequently Asked Questions:
2022 Power to Heal Campaign
What is the Power to Heal Campaign?
This annual campaign offers you the opportunity to join in celebrating a growing culture of gratitude at MedStar Health. In honor of your colleagues and fellow associates, you may give a philanthropic gift, gratitude message, or both.
When can I participate?
ANYTIME! Your philanthropic gift and gratitude messages are welcome today, or anytime during the year.
Who will benefit from my contribution?
This year, the Power to Heal Campaign will continue to focus on supporting and enhancing the Associate Wellbeing initiatives that benefit all associates across MedStar Health. Caregiver burnout has taken a toll on our healthcare associates, especially over the past few years. To build on the progress that we have already made, this year’s Power to Heal Campaign will continue to support associate wellbeing initiatives.
In the past year, we have been able to create a peer support network, build recharging stations in our facilities, implement wellness rounds, and share mental health and wellness resources with our associates.
This year, funds raised through the Power to Heal Campaign will support initiatives at each entity and across the system such as expanding our peer-to-peer services and support networks, enhancing wellness rounding, providing mental health support for physicians and associates, educating resilience coaches, and growing virtual services for associates working remotely.
As one MedStar Health, we have the power to leverage the strength of the entire organization to rally around a single strategic initiative to support MedStar Health associates across the system. When we say, “It’s how we treat people,” we are referring to every person. And it begins with our associates.
