Behavior change is hard! It is complex and multifactorial. It includes our biology, our psyche, and our environment. Change will only occur when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of making the change. We also need to feel we have more strategies and resources than we do obstacles and barriers. Thinking about setting a goal is the first step, but we must realize that we also must take action to make our goals happen – and it’s important to have support, guidance, and accountability in the process
Congratulations to the Mather Hospital team for being one of only seven hospitals in New York State to receive the highest five star rating as a hospital patients are most likely to recommend. This is a testament to and a validation of the work our entire Mather family does each day!
