Our success is gained by actively promoting diversity in our people, those who bring a wide array of thoughts, ideas and experience to the work we do and the capacity to respect the diversity of those who seek our care and with whom we work.

Through words and actions, our system supports the professional responsibility of each team member to identify and communicate concerns inconsistent with safe care and a safe working environment. Evidence-based decision making. Decisions are based on the best available evidence, data, information and knowledge. As new discoveries are made and new knowledge shared, the health system integrates these into the decision-making process to advance excellence in every aspect of safe, patient-centered, efficient and value-added care, outcomes and infrastructure.
