Diversity, equity, and inclusion are a part of our identity and our strength. We foster a culture in which employees trust that they are represented, that their voices will be heard, and that their work will be valued.

Why? Because we know that diverse teams thrive in an inclusive environment—and those same conditions improve professional performance and personal satisfaction, and instill in us a shared sense of purpose.

“Excellent health and wellness in our population [requires] health care providers who are trusted by their community. Our communities knowing there is strong Black representation in health care systems like ours, trust the medical care we deliver and accept health advice much easier with less inhibition in the process.”
