A team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania profiled Renewal Care Partners in Case Western University’s World Inquiry, a global research initiative exploring innovations in the private sector that create world benefit.
“Renewal Care Partners is a pioneer in long-term care,” says Dr. Joseph Kasper, MD, a member of the research team. “The organization recognizes that cultivating well-being among their staff not only prevents burnout, but also enhances the quality of care their clients receive. This approach differs markedly from typical practices in long-term care. We believe it has the potential to help reinvigorate the sector.”
The national research team included Dr. Samantha Boardman, MD, a clinical instructor of Psychiatry and Public Health at Cornell Medical College and founder of Positive Prescription; Dr. Jason Powers, MD, an addiction specialist and Chief Medical Officer of Right Step; Dr. Joseph Kasper, MD, who leads a private practice in internal medicine; and Zak Kelm, a researcher in positive psychology.

We are proud to announce that Renewal Care Partners has become a Certified Benefit Corporation.
Benefit Corporations or (“B Corporations”) are a new kind of company that use the power of business for the benefit of society and the environment. Like nonprofit organizations, B Corporations exist for the common good. They put the interests of stakeholders—including their employees, clients, communities, and the environment—ahead of private interests.
To support socially-responsible businesses, New York State approved the formation of Benefit Corporations in 2012. Having completed the certification process in 2013, Renewal Care Partners is among the first health care providers to become a B Corporation.
We became a B Corporation because we believe that social enterprise can help lead the way to a better world. Our clients’ well-being depends on the well-being of the families and professionals who care for them. Similarly, our long-term viability as an organization depends on the health of the communities and environment in which we work. Our recognition of this interconnectedness underlies our approach to care and the way we manage our organization. read full article »
