Local Authors Pen New Book on Optimal Healing Environment

(Fort Myers, Fla. – Oct. 31, 2017) ---“Mindful Healthcare: Healthy Team, Healthy Business,” a new book co-authored by Lee County residents Scott Kashman and Joan Odorizzi, will be offered to the public Nov. 1. Kashman is Lee Health’s Chief Acute Care Officer, and Odorizzi formerly worked as Cape Coral Hospital’s Healing Environment Business Partner. The book will launch on Amazon.com, with special Kindle download pricing on Nov. 1 and 2. All proceeds from sales of the book will benefit Lee Health Foundation’s Community Wellness fund.

According to the authors, a healthcare organization needs to be more than capable nurses and doctors, sterile operating theaters, a business office, and emergency room. Every successful medical organization should be an optimal healing environment. This holistic, person-centered approach to the business of medicine focuses on empowering the hospital and health system's working community.

A Lee Health project, “Mindful Healthcare: Healthy Team, Healthy Business” is a guide to organizational wellness and better business outcomes, offering a bold new paradigm for medical care.
