President & Chief Executive Officer
Our day-to-day work is inspired by our five core values. This ensures our team members understand how to deliver excellent care, work better together, strengthen our relationships with our partners and make a lasting, positive impact on our communities.
We are committed to going above and beyond, never settling for anything less than excellence. We pride ourselves on being industry leaders and challenge ourselves to improve continuously.
We start with empathy, taking the time to understand the physical, mental and emotional needs of each other and those we support. We listen, make deep connections and engage on a personal level to better serve those we support.
We do the right thing the right way, no matter how difficult, even when no one is looking. We’re not afraid to have hard conversations. If we make a mistake, we acknowledge it, proactively find a resolution and make it right going forward.
We have a positive spirit and find the light even in the most difficult situations. We bring our whole selves to work. We celebrate successes and inspire others to create meaningful impact.
We believe our individual strengths make us stronger together. We take accountability for our actions, connect across teams and lean in to get it done – at all levels of the company.
Achieving the best possible outcomes and getting our patients back to their lives motivates us to do our best every day. When we make the world a better place inside our walls, we carry those thoughts and behaviors to the outside world, which helps make all of us better all the time.
One way we continue to evolve as a company and as individuals is through DEI training. Through carefully designed courses that address our specific needs, our employees learn how to improve upon our culture of belonging and respect. Our training also includes becoming better acquainted with our local communities and the diverse patient populations that we serve. We encourage positive communication and continually work to build an environment of understanding, safety and trust.
Hiring a diverse team with various talents and experiences improves patient care and helps us to better understand each other, our patients and the world around us. Our Developing Future CEOs Program offers an incredible development opportunity for those wanting to expand and develop their skills for a career as a CEO and leader in healthcare. We continually strive to improve upon and build a culture where our leaders and team members value diversity of thoughts, skills and backgrounds. Everyone is unique, and we recognize the value that brings to our teams and company as a whole.
From all over the nation and across job roles, our team members have something to say about our diversity and the sense of belonging we pride ourselves on.
