There is strength in diversity. Here at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System we believe that each person makes a unique contribution to our culture and that we all have more in common than we realize.
Our mission and values provide the foundation upon which our Diversity and Cultural Competency Strategy is built. The development of our diversity efforts is guided by:
- The principles of Relationship Centered Care
- The Institute Of Medicine Triangle
- The Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services Standards
We welcome a multitude of perspectives, ethnicities, lifestyles, faiths and personalities. Utilizing diversity councils and interpreter services, we equip our team with the training and resources to deliver culturally competent care. We also celebrate with each other during ethnic recognition activities throughout the year. And we’re proud to have earned local recognition as a Bronze Sponsor for the NAACP.
Join us here and know we’re committed to creating an inclusive, multicultural and diverse workforce.
Our purpose statement: To achieve equity by eliminating disparities in health outcomes and access to health services by delivering remarkable, culturally competent care, while creating a culture that promotes inclusiveness and engagement.
