Henry Schein Becomes a Founding Member of the Gold Corporation Council
Humanism plays an important role in optimal health care, and it can make a large impact whether it is in a hospital room, clinic, or billing office. The Arnold P. Gold Foundation has been a change agent by studying humanism in health care for over 30 years, and in 1993, the Gold Foundation initiated the White Coat Ceremony, a ritual to emphasize humanism at the beginning of health professions training.
In 2017, in recognition of the importance of collectively strengthening humanism across the health care ecosystem, the Gold Foundation created the Gold Corporate Council. Dedicated to adopting humanistic policies and procedures within its organization, Henry Schein recently became one of its five founding members. In collaboration with the Gold Foundation, Henry Schein is exploring global opportunities to amplify the voice of humanism in health care among its key constituencies, including the health care practitioners it serves and its partner organizations.
Stanley M. Bergman, Henry Schein’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, recently published an editorial in Chief Executive magazine urging others to “keep humanity at the core of healthcare.” Mr. Bergman said, “Comforting the family as well as the patient, according to the research, results in tangible benefits, including better treatment adherence, fewer complications, and reduced readmissions.”
