Raising Awareness During Heart Health Month

CareRite Centers was proud to welcome alongside Donna Karan, New York’s leading healthcare executives, physicians, and caregivers to the Urban Zen flagship in New York City in observance of National Heart Health Month!


In a movement to raise awareness for cardiac health and wellness globally, CareRite Centers and Urban Zen shared with leading clinical experts the positive impact of self-care and integrative healing modalities in Western medicine. The evening was headlined by New York’s Donna Karan, as she shared the mission of Urban Zen Integrative Therapy in partnership with CareRite Centers.

CareRite Centers has welcomed Urban Zen Integrative Therapy to ten skilled nursing centers across the nation to date, ensuing a nearly 11% increase in overall patient satisfaction, and over a 14% increase in patient reported pain relief without the use of medication. Dr. Christopher Glenn, Medical Director of The Riverside Premier Rehabilitation and Healing Center in New York City, noted the opportunity of integrative therapy in Western medical practice. In medicine, you must “increase your capacity to love,” shared Glenn.

The Urban Zen and CareRite Centers partnership has successfully provided over 9,000 experiences to those under the care of CareRite team members, including that of private experiences for employees, patients and their loved ones, while also serving as locations for free Urban Zen Integrative Therapy community classes for professionals and family members.
