Integrity – We must model high, ethical standards, which means doing the right thing when no one is looking and walking the talk as leaders.
Compassion – No longer are we to live by the Golden Rule, but rather we are to live a...nd operate by the Platinum Rule, which is to treat people how they want to be treated and being responsive to their needs.
Always – We are focused on creating a Culture of Always. This means every patient, every time and every touch. Always. Not Sometimes, Not Usually. Always.
Respect – It is imperative to demonstrate respect and teamwork to each and every employee, while focusing on patient-centered care.
Excellence – When you add the first four values together (Integrity, Compassion, Always and Respect), we will be the destination of Excellence and our metrics and indicators will prove it.
