Mindfulness for Public Hospitals

Nurses in Public Hospital

We are a Nonprofit Organization dedicated to improving the mental health of the community.


Doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers are the foundation of our medical system, and when we get sick, our lives literally depend on these people. Particularly in the case of public hospitals, this is where many of our society’s most vulnerable people seek out medical treatment in urgent situations. Given the great responsibility placed on workers in public hospitals, many of them report feeling extreme stress, fatigue, and burnout, comprising not only their own health but the health of the patients they serve as well. By implementing a mindfulness-based preventative measure with the YOG Foundation, workers in public hospitals can improve their ability to withstand the mental and physical pressures of their work, thereby improving their own lives and the outcomes of their patients.

A Vision for a More Mindful Future

With the average doctor at a public hospital caring for over 2,000 patients at a time, the immense workload put on our medical system is truly in a dire position. Public hospitals, in particular, see almost 19 times more patient admissions annually than private hospitals. Particularly with the rise of chronic illnesses and the ongoing pandemic, many public hospitals are short-staffed, underfunded, and overworked. Given the high pressure and workload put on our medical system, this leads to a reduced quality of care for patients. Currently, preventable medical errors result in around 400,000 deaths per year in the US alone. However, by implementing a mindfulness program with the YOG Foundation, medical workers can gain benefits to their mind, body, and soul, thereby improving their own quality of life and potentially saving the lives of many of their patients.
