How we connect to our mission

Last month, we celebrated patient experience week and reflected on why we are committed to our mission… Above all else we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

Members of our team work behind the scenes in hospital operations, administration, accounting, case management and other departments to support our caregivers and patients.

Why I am committed to care…

“My motivation comes from knowing I’ve made things better for the patients and the people that serve them.” – Sharon Hickman


“As a teenager, I survived two potentially fatal illnesses thanks to the care I received. Sooner or later, we, our loved ones and friends are all patients. Every patient should be cared for as one of us and deserves the best outcome that can be delivered.” – Justin Collier, MD
