Healing with Heart: Inspirations for Healthcare Professionals, winner of the 2008 American Journal of Nursing Book of the Year award in the leadership and management category, is a collection of true stories that take place in hospitals and hospices. These stories remind health care professionals of the importance and sacredness of their work. They point out that everyone in healthcare plays a role in creating a healing environment.

For six years, Martin Helldorfer, a former monk and psychologist and senior executive at a Denver-based health care system, has written weekly inspirational e-mails to the organization’s employees. These messages have been a climate-shaping force at Exempla Healthcare. Healing with Heart, a gift-quality, portable book, is a compilation of the best of these emails. It is being used to improve the quality of person-centered care, support recruitment and retention results and reinforce a health system’s mission.

--management retreats, workshops
--staff meetings
--new employee orientation
--awards, acknowledge accomplishments
--holiday gifts

“The weekly Thought From Mission [the emails that are the basis for
Healing with Heart 
] is the most unique form of communication thatI have ever seen during almost thirty years of working in hospitals.The meaning of mission or how the spirit of one’s mission connectswith the organization as a whole, is often lacking or misunderstood.Marty Helldorfer has perfected an enlightening way to make thisconnection real, thus truly bringing mission to life, and for thathe is to be congratulated.”

“I have read Marty’s reflections [Thought from Mission, the basis for
Healing with Heart 
] weekly for the past five years and have been amazed by his creativity. . . and his ability to address issues that are pertinent tothe average employee and other weeks to physicians and clinicians.He consistently highlights the dignity of the person and how all ofus, no matter our socio-economic or educational level, must wrestlewith life, death, illness, surprise traumatic events and basic respect forone another. I often forwarded his reflections to our palliative careand hospice clinicians who appreciated his ability to connect ultimatelife issues with basic day-to-day living. They often commented onhow helpful it was to be reminded of the importanceof caring for one another. I welcome this book, as will others.This is the kind of book I would like to receive as a gift!”
