A View from the Bed:
A Patient’s Perspective
At CHI St. Vincent, we know it’s important for individuals to have access to the information they need to make informed decisions regarding their health and procedures they may need. We know that one of the most powerful ways people make decisions is through word-of-mouth encounters and reviews about that service or procedure - and that’s what our podcast is all about!
Our podcast, called “A View from the Bed” is all about having honest conversations with patients, allowing them to share their experiences about their healthcare journey; the good, the bad and everything in between. We hope our podcast is a valuable resource for individuals to get the additional insight they need to make their own healthcare decisions.
