The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the nation’s first hospital devoted exclusively to the care of children, prioritizes health and wellbeing for not only their patients but their more than 14,000 employees. Throughout the pandemic and a year of social unrest, CHOP’s employees—both remote and frontline workers—were faced with unprecedented circumstances while caring for their patients, their families and themselves. With these responsibilities came incredible stress and anxiety, especially for frontline workers. Fear of exposing family members to COVID-19 left those members of their workforce nervous to return home after work and unruly protesting throughout the city created a sense of hesitation about commuting to work. With these challenges at the forefront of their day-to-day routine, CHOP knew they needed to do something to support the mental health of their employees.
