Phillips DiPisa, , a retained executive search firm serving healthcare providers, managed care organizations, and life sciences firms, announced its launch of a unique pro bono effort in support of the Kenneth B. Schwartz Center.

The Kenneth B. Schwartz Center is a non-profit organization that supports and advances the concept of “compassionate healthcare.” The Center strives to improve relationships among caregivers, patients, and their families in ways that provide hope to the patient, support to caregivers, and sustenance to the healing process.

Phillips DiPisa is producing and directing a series of short video interviews featuring patients telling the story of their relationships with their caregivers. These interviews bring to life the stories of patients whose lives have been touched by caregivers who have embraced the Center’s concept of compassionate care.

Phillips DiPisa has just completed shooting its pilot video of the series. The piece features an interview with Diamond Tincher, a cancer patient living in Haverhill, Massachusetts, and her nurse, Kathie Peuser, from Tufts Medical Center. Diamond is a young woman who has battled leukemia since she was two years old. In the video, she movingly describes how her special relationship with Kathie enabled Diamond to endure through some especially trying periods.

“We’re just delighted with Phillips DiPisa’s initiative and leadership on this exciting project,” noted Julie Rosen, Executive Director of the Center. “Web-based video has become such a powerful communications medium. It offers an outstanding opportunity for us to communicate the power of compassionate care in improving the quality of healthcare across the country.”

The Center and Phillips DiPisa share the goal of producing several videos a year and publishing them on the Schwartz Center website, as well as other online channels.
