Partnering to distribute guides:
While we encourage patients and their caregivers to download our guides and actively use them during their hospital stay, we also work with hospitals and healthcare centers to proactively distribute guides to patients. Thanks to these partnerships, we’ve distributed over 40,000 free guides to patients and families across the globe. Learn more about how your hospital can partner with the Batz Foundation.
