A Message From the CEO
Read a message on diversity from the President and CEO of Good Samaritan Hospital (GSH), Eloise Broner.
A Healthy Community Grows With Diversity
Diversity is one of today’s hot topics, but at GSH, diversity is business as usual. At GSH, we know that true diversity goes much deeper than percentages of people on a payroll. Genuine diversity is defined by the seamless inclusion of all people—and that is what we strive for every day.
A Workforce That Reflects the Community
We believe that attracting and retaining a workforce that mirrors our diverse community has a significant impact on our patients, our employees themselves, and our success as a health care institution and neighborhood change agent. This is why promoting diversity is and always will be a critical value and a high-priority business strategy at GSH.
We are working hard throughout the organization to identify and remove barriers to inclusion. And because we recognize that people not only look different, but also think differently, we are learning how to leverage the power of inclusiveness to foster innovation, enhance problem solving, and promote learning and personal growth.
Embracing Patient Diversity
In terms of patient care, it is an indisputable fact that culturally diverse groups represent the largest-growing segment of the patient population. The choices our patients face and the outcomes they experience must be framed within their own experience and culture. Achieving cultural competency is no easy task, but we are committed to providing the education and tools our employees need to meet our patients on their own terms. We believe that this approach to care is the only way to truly embrace the whole person.
Our Ongoing Commitment to Diversity
If you are a GSH employee or thinking about joining our workforce, or if you are a patient or a family member of a patient, I pledge to you that honoring diversity and fostering inclusion are at the heartbeat of Good Samaritan Hospital.
President and CEO, Good Samaritan Hospital
