support the institution's mission of caring for patients and their caregivers.

Since July 2004, more than 1,000 OSF Saint Francis employees have gone through HeartMath training, and the hospital's successes during that time include:

  • The Performance Improvement Leaders Award from Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospitals
  • 2008-09 National Research Corporation Consumer Choice Award
  • Magnet hospital designation
  • The Get with the Guidelines Cardiovascular Award
  • The Vermont Oxford Network, a major voluntary information-sharing network for NICU data, reported in November that the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the medical center's Children's Hospital of Illinois was the best in the world based on 2005-07 data collected from more than 600 NICUs worldwide.
"HeartMath-trained employees have better control over how they react to challenging situations and subsequently, this increases their autonomy," hospital administrators said in a joint statement. "They are also happier and feel better equipped to handle the daily challenges of healthcare on a fast-paced unit. Giving the HeartMath tools to new employees has better prepared them to work with our patient population."

Also at OSF Saint Francis:

  • Patient-care-unit nurses have incorporated HeartMath tools and technology to help their patients
  • Employee physical stress symptoms have declined
  • Vitality, resiliency and emotional intelligence have improved
  • HeartMath-trained employees have enrolled in other wellness programs after applying HeartMath tools in their lives.
HeartMath methods are introduced for 30 minutes to all new employees during orientation. Trainers teach them the Quick Coheren
