Diversity In Action
To us, every patient is a loved one, a neighbor, a friend. We celebrate diversity and belonging within our communities with the same dedication and pride, as we do within our system. To enhance our commitment to our patients, we’ve organized diverse workgroups of community representatives at each hospital location to be part of programs that address the specific health care needs of our surrounding populations.
We lead with thoughtful action, annually assessing emerging health trends, our system’s charity care, subsidized health services, community health services and financial contributions to community-based health organizations, to stay connected with our ever changing communities. Our programs bring resources to underserved populations who seek care. Programs such as our Women’s Heart Program, support groups and educational classes for vulnerable populations, and partnerships with various faith based and diverse organizations allow our team members to be part of our eclectic communities. We don’t just work in a health system, we are truly part of our community.
