When was the last time you had a “heart-to-heart” with a woman?

When is the last time you had a “heart-to-heart” with a woman? Last week the St. Louis Post-Dispatch ran a story on the power of women to help each other prevent and heal heart disease and stroke: Women Teaching Women that Heart Disease is Their Biggest Health Threat.

Of course, I am particularly proud because the showcased hospital – St. Luke’s Hospital in Chesterfield, Missouri – has been one of Spirit Health Group’s most successful and innovative partners in advancing the cause and business of women’s health for more than 10 years. This year, the HeartCaring Conference was held in St. Louis in part to highlight St. Luke’s success story.

As you can see in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch article, the core of our success is to INSPIRE AND MOTIVATE WOMEN TO HELP EACH OTHER BE THEIR HEALTHIEST NOW. Our Spirit Health Group initiatives – like HeartCaring and Spirit of Women – engage physicians, nurses, and staff through a community movement. Our strategy works because it gives women what we want – a chance to help thrive and have fun by not only taking care of ourselves, but also reaching out to others.

It is amazing to see excellence in healthcare in action. We all know that the healthcare industry is changing, and we need to adapt. St. Luke’s and Spirit Health Group hospitals around the country are not waiting for new models in community health management to be handed to them. They are ACTING today in exciting and fresh ways to attract, assess, diagnose, and treat women and their families across a lifetime.

Some things will (thankfully) never change in healthcare and it is these constants that keep Spirit Health Group vibrant and growing: Providers and healthcare executives choose our profession because we really want to make a DIFFERENCE.

I invite you to learn more about our HeartCaring strategy and how to change lives in your community while building revenues and market share at your hospital. Request your copy of the Process of HeartCaring Success Infographic to learn how to orchestrate a community-wide women’s heart movement that positions your hospital as the market leader and champion of gender-sensitive cardiovascular services.

I am always available to personally discuss your views on the changing world of healthcare. And as always, feel free to respond to me directly. Email me at, or call me at 561.544.2034.

In the Spirit of heartfelt experiences,
