New episodes released every other Thursday on all major podcast apps

Can a familiar bed, snuggles from a beloved pet and other comforts of home help patients recover faster? What does it take for a dancer or other performance athlete on the stage, floor or ice to recover after pushing their bodies to the limit? How can a primary care provider help a patient struggling with food insecurity?

“There has never been a more exciting time in health care, as innovations in science, technology and care delivery are transforming the industry—and transforming the ways that we as individuals can lead healthier lives,” said Karen Browne, vice president of Marketing & Communications for ChristianaCare. “The ‘For the Love of Health’ podcast is your invitation every two weeks to learn something amazing from the experts at ChristianaCare.”

As one of the nation’s most innovative and dynamic health systems, perennially ranked among America’s 50 Best Hospitals by Healthgrades, US News & World Report Best Hospitals, Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals and other health care ratings, ChristianaCare is home to a diverse array of experts in almost every facet of health care and medicine.

The first two episodes are available now on all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google Podcasts.

Every other Thursday hosts Michael Chesney and Megan McGuriman take listeners through insightful interviews with ChristianaCare’s experts.

Episode 1 features Sarah Schenck, M.D., FACP, medical director of Virtualist Medicine for ChristianaCare’s Center for Virtual Health, who discusses how the home is the hottest new venue for care, and ChristianaCare’s Hospital Care at Home program is providing actual hospital inpatient care to patients in the comfort of their own homes.
