Physician Well-Being

Community Health Network recognizes the critical importance of supporting the well-being of our physician partners. Well-being goes beyond absence of burnout but rather includes participation in activities achieving physical vitality, work life balance, professional fulfillment and accomplishment, and resiliency. Our goal is to provide resources to support and promote physician well-being, manage and prevent burnout, and connect physicians to the joy of practicing medicine. Healthcare organizations that promote and develop effective physician leaders demonstrate significantly reduced levels of burnout as well as increased physician engagement, which results in higher quality care, improved patient safety, at lower cost. We believe exceptional physician experiences at Community create exceptional patient experiences.

Physician Collegiality and Social Networking

The Center for Physician Well-Being and Professional Development is planning a number of social events in the upcoming year. These informal gatherings are designed to promote collegiality, share ideas to improve work life balance, and discuss future strategies to reduce physician burnout. Examples of events are informal dinners and wine-tasting events with groups of 10-20 physicians hosted in the various regions of the network.

You can stay in-the-know about upcoming social or networking events through our email list. Email Ann Ostrom to be included on our email list and receive up-to-date information or to provide ideas for future events.
