- Schwartz Rounds are a multidisciplinary forum where caregivers discuss difficult emotional and social issues that arise in caring for patients.
- Schwartz Rounds are very different from clinical or ethics rounds.
- Rounds were piloted at Mass General Hospital in Boston in 1997 and have been held monthly there since. Currently, the Rounds are held at nearly 300 healthcare facilities in 37 states.
- We hope you will find the Rounds a safe, comfortable forum where you can learn from and support each other.

The Mission of the Kenneth B. Schwartz Center
- is to promote compassionate health care and strengthen the relationship between patients and caregivers, and
- is focused on fostering relationships
"that provide hope to the patient, support to caregivers and sustenance to the healing process."

Please come and bring a colleague!
