As a member of Premier Health (Premier), Good Samaritan Hospital (GSH) defines diversity as the gathering of a mosaic of people who bring a variety of background, styles, perspectives, values, and beliefs as assets to the groups and organizations with which they interact. Having diversity within our organization allows us access to a much wider range of problem-solving skills, facilitates critical analysis, and generates new and sometimes unexpected ideas.
We are committed to providing a positive work environment that values, appreciates, and respects all individuals, where differences are welcomed and employees are encouraged to voice their ideas and feel empowered to make decisions.
Our mission reflects a commitment to high-quality, cost-effective health services to the diverse communities that we serve. At the core of this commitment is the belief that in order to meet our patients’ expectations and improve treatment outcomes, it is necessary for us to understand the patient’s frame of reference. A diverse workforce allows us to draw upon the richness of our human resources, create a positive work environment, and meet the expectations of those we serve.
The success of our organization is dependent on the quality of our relationships with one another (patients, co-workers, and community members). Our diversity process enriches our efforts to build a healthier community.
Premier’s diversity initiative further sets the tone for corporate policies that foster an inclusive environment where every individual is treated with dignity and respect. This is the corporate policy regarding behaviors that are acceptable and not acceptable within our environment.
