What does compassion mean at Madison Memorial?

The literal meaning of compassion is, “a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.”

Knowing that compassion is a ‘strong desire to alleviate the suffering,’ it would be extremely important that the people who attend those at hospitals would have a heart of compassion.
