Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Spectrum Health Care supports our mission and vision of providing high quality, reliable and compassionate care by fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion within our organization.
We embrace and encourage our employees’ differences in age, color, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, race, religion, sexual orientation and other characteristics that make our employees unique. A culture of inclusion that maximizes this collective diversity and reflects our patients and their families allows us to create and maintain an environment which is open, safe, equitable, respectful and engages our diverse patients, families, and staff to provide caring, trustworthy, responsive, safe and high quality care.
Spectrum also maintains a written Cultural Competency, Diversity and Inclusion policy that describes how the diverse needs of our patients and families are addressed in a respected and open manner. We engage our diverse partners in the ideals of respect for diversity and inclusion based on respect for the dignity of each person involved in care. All partners need to feel respected, engaged and be given a voice to participate in optimizing the quality of care given and received.
