People Putting the 'Care' in Health Care


Health care workers are some of the hardest working, most caring individuals we know. And now we have the evidence....

We developed the CareStars(TM) program on WhereToFindCare.com to recognize individuals in the health care field for going out of their way to make us feel better during our most vulnerable times - when we are sick or hospitalized. The program allows patients or their loved ones to recognize people who have made a difference by completing a short survey and describing how the individuals helped them. These CareStars are displayed anonomously on our website and will be relayed back to the organization for which the individuals work.

The program has only been up for a few months but we've already had a great response. Below are just a few of the CareStars recognitions we've already received. Congratulations, CareStars--keep up the great work!
