Lee Tomlinson


The C.A.R.E Effect Movement
A stage 3+ cancer survivor, patient-centered care advocate, and corporate customer service expert, Lee Tomlinson is a nationally known thought leader and TEDTalk presenter on compassionate care. Combining his unique constellation of life experiences for the benefit of healthcare organizations, Lee is dedicated to bringing compassionate care back to its rightful place at the forefront of modern medicine. Professionally, Lee is a former C-Suite executive who owned a legendary Hollywood studio, built another, raised tens of millions of dollars for a national charity, produced a decade of award-winning network Television Specials for CBS and the American Film Institute, and toured the world as a professional athlete. After a lifetime of extraordinary experiences as a highly successful entrepreneur and life-long customer service consultant, Lee recently battled Stage 3+ throat cancer. His excruciating fight, and encounters with compassion-less care, drove him into a severe depression and serious thoughts of suicide. Fortunately, a deeply kind, caring and compassionate physician renewed Lee’s will to live and inspired him to create “The C.A.R.E. Effect Movement.” Now a man on a mission, Lee has discovered his true life’s purpose: to inspire, motivate and challenge medical professionals to provide nothing less than their most compassionate care to benefit their patients, colleagues, hospitals and most importantly – themselves. Through passionate storytelling, evidenced-based research and practical tools, Lee helps healthcare organizations create the culture and practices necessary to provide exceptional patient care, improve patient satisfaction, enhance employee engagement and increase profitability. Lee now travels globally spreading his message of the life-saving power of compassion to help heal patients and all-too-often suffering medical professionals, while enhancing the bottom line of the healthcare organizations in which their lives intersect.
