We have arrived at a state of being having raised the quality of care to unprecedented levels. Our health care service product is safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient and equitable.

Safe – We avoid injuries to patients from the care that is intended to help them.

Effective – We provide services based on scientific knowledge to all who could benefit and refrain from providing services to those not likely to benefit.

Patient-Centered – We provide care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs and values and ensure that patient values guide all clinical decisions.

Timely – We reduce waits and sometimes harmful delays for both those who receive and those who give care.

Efficient – We avoid waste, including waste of equipment, supplies, ideas and energy.

Equitable – We provide care that does not vary in quality because of personal characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, geographic location and socioeconomic status.


  • Respect for every individual
  • Delivery of quality service
  • Constant pursuit of excellence
  • Commitment to integrity
