Three most important things

Upon admission, we ask every patient: “What are the three most important things we need to know about you to provide excellent care?”

These answers shape how the caregiver team provides care to enhance the patient’s quality of life. Whether a patient prefers a certain snack or wants to be called by a childhood nickname, our team witnesses how these small gestures leave memorable impressions on our patients and families.
