A Cause for Celebration - The Lennar Foundation Medical Center dazzles in its debut on the Coral Gables campus.

Hundreds of community leaders, University of Miami trustees and administrators, donors and other dignitaries helped dedicate The Lennar Foundation Medical Center on the Coral Gables campus Friday, ushering in a new world of health care imagined and realized by the University of Miami Health System.


“This is a monumental day for the University of Miami,” said Steven M. Altschuler, M.D., senior vice president for health affairs and chief executive officer of the University of Miami Health System. “It is truly a transformational moment in the history of the University of Miami Health System, and it’s also the start of a new vision for health care in South Florida. This is a facility, this is a concept, that really thinks about the patient first.”


In this new vision for health care, the patient experience is transformed into a journey of being well.


“We will know you personally, care for you individually, and guide you uniquely,” Chief Administrative Officer Benjamin J. Riestra said in a video Altschuler showed guests at the event. “This is not just about a new building. More importantly, it’s a new destination, a new experience, a new way of being well.”

Past research has demonstrated a relationship between happiness and workplace success. For example, compared with their less happy peers, happy people earn more money, display superior performance, and perform more helpful acts. Researchers have often assumed that an employee is happy and satisfied because he or she is successful. In this article, the authors review evidence in support of an alternative hypothesis—namely, that happiness is a source of why particular employees are more successful than others. To this end, the authors consider evidence from three types of studies—cross-sectional, longitudinal, and experimental—that relate happiness to various

work outcomes. Taken together, the evidence suggests that happiness is not only correlated with workplace success but that happiness often precedes measures of success and that induction of positive affect leads to improved workplace outcomes.


A wealth of research suggests that happy and satisfied individuals are relatively more successful in the workplace. For example, happiness is related to income (Diener & Biswas-Diener, 2002), favorable evaluations by a superior (Cropanzano & Wright, 1999), helping fellow workers (George, 1991), and social support from colleagues and supervisors (Iverson, Olekalns, & Erwin, 1998). Most researchers have assumed that the accomplishment of such indicators of success in the workplace  causes a person to be happy. In fact, the alternative hypothesis—that happiness

causes success—may be equally plausible. In this article, we review the available literature to support the idea that happiness is an important precursor and determinant of career success.
