The Live Well Foundation’s mission is to care for our community’s caregivers by providing services and tools that contribute to the health and wellbeing of Madison County physicians and healthcare teams. Additionally, the Foundation believes that everyone should have access to quality healthcare. Therefore, it seeks to increase accessibility by partnering with our caregivers, hospitals, and community partners to identify needs and implement solutions.

Through the Live Well Foundation, we are excited to offer

free confidential counseling services 

that support physician well-being resilience and growth. 

Take care of your patients by taking care of yourself.  

Live Well is intended to provide a safe harbor for physicians to address normal life difficulties 

in a confidential and professional environment.

The LWF has contracted with independent, doctorate-level therapists who have been evaluated by the volunteer MCMS Physician Wellness Committee.  These licensed professionals are experienced in counseling health care providers and have demonstrated dedication to the needs of the MCMS physician.  Our providers will maintain a confidential file for each physician.  No insurance will be billed and the Live Well Foundation or MCMS will not be given any information about those who utilize the program. The Live Well Foundation will pay providers based on the number of sessions conducted.  

Live Well is a confidential service offered to Madison County physicians.  Usage of these services does not need to be disclosed on hospital privilege applications.  

We will provide up to 3 complimentary sessions per calendar year.

Although the MCMS Physician Wellness committee has vetted the contracting therapists for general suitability, basic qualifications, and Alabama licensure to provide services, we do not independently verify their credentials nor do we guarantee their suitability for any particular issue for which a MCMS member may seek therapy. Referrals can be made to psychiatric care for more complex medical needs.
