We are committed to building a workforce that reflects the diversity of
the community we serve. Fostering a diverse workforce benefits both employees
and patients by offering an inclusive place to provide and receive care.
Men and women from different backgrounds serve in a number of roles in
our organization. While we may come from different experiences, we all
share the same goal of providing high quality patient care.
Providing Culturally Competent Care
Our employees receive annual training designed to support and encourage
an inclusive environment for healthcare delivery and customer service.
Additional resources are available to assist with the delivery of healthcare,
such as translation and technology services and responding to cultural
issues for patients and families of different backgrounds.
Recruiting & Retaining Diverse Talent
As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we are committed to recruiting talented
employees with valuable expertise from different races, religions, genders,
sexual orientations and other protected classes. We participate in local
career fairs and business expos, work with recruiting sources to actively
seek diverse applicants, and partner with colleges and schools with significant
minority enrollment to identify highly qualified applicants.
