Values & Behaviors
Underpinned by our values & behaviors
Courage
Breakthroughs start by challenging convention-especially in the face of uncertainly or adversity. This happens when we think big, speak up, and are decisive.
Excellence
We can only change patients' lives when we perform at our best together. This happens when we focus on what matters, agree who does what, and measure outcomes.
Equity
Every person deserves to be seen, heard, and cared for. This happens when we are inclusive, act with integrity, and reduce healthcare disparities.
Joy
We give ourselves to our work, and it also gives to us. We find joy when we take pride, recognize one another, and have fun.
