Princeton Health celebrated its second Penn Medicine Experience (PMX) Week with a series of activities highlighting the overall theme of compassion — not only through stories of kindness to patients and their loved ones but also by taking time to care for ourselves and our co-workers. Most days of the weeklong celebration offered special breaks for physicians, employees, and volunteers, such as mindful meditation sessions, chair yoga, and visits from therapy dogs.
The week kicked off with senior leadership rounding on Monday, October 14, as executives and directors visited departments throughout Princeton Health to deliver treats and take (or pose for) pictures with staff members inside a Culture of Excellence Always photo frame.
Throughout PMX Week, a Voice of the Customer exhibit — poster boards decorated with comments from patient satisfaction surveys — remained on display at Princeton Medical Center and other Princeton Health facilities. Employees were asked to share what compassion means to them by writing on boards that were set up in various locations.
All week, Princeton Health collected socks from physicians, employees, volunteers, and visitors that will be donated to local charitable organizations. PMX Week was highlighted by an award ceremony on Thursday, October 17.
