Values and clinical services
Nursing is vital in every component of our integrated healthcare system and we value the importance of supporting nurses to practice to the top of their license and remain active participants in the quality healthcare that is provided throughout our organization.
We value accountability, respect, continuous improvement, collaboration, compassion, trust and commitment to each other and to our mission to serve. We support staff engagement and development through professional governance embedded within our model of nursing care.
