The Diversity & Inclusion Council’s purpose is to coordinate, integrate and promote an inclusive work environment, which is diverse and culturally competent to better serve our patients, families, team members and our community.  The council will provide leadership and encourage collaboration among all team members and affiliated partners to acknowledge, value, respect and embrace the strengths and differences represented throughout the medical center and our clinically integrated network.

The medical center is committed to this purpose because inclusive and diverse teams are more innovative, perform better and are more profitable—all of which enables us to better serve our patients, families, team members and community. The council also advances our organization as a thought leader in addressing healthcare disparities.
