The Leadership Journey of Patient-Centered Care

Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber (Chan Soon-Shiong Medical Center at Windber) is a 54-bed Designated Planetree Patient-Centered Hospital in western Pennsylvania. We are the only Planetree hospital in Pennsylvania and one of only ten hospitals in the world to have achieved designation status, which can be viewed as the gold standard of patient-centered care. Guided by the core components of the Planetree philosophy, patient-centered care is not something we do, but rather something we are. The very culture of our acute care hospital embraces the concept that the patient is central to his or her own care, and the family is a component of that unit of care. Providing care the way we believe it should be provided extends to all who enter our doors.
