Commitment to Diversity at Premier Health

The Value of Diversity

Our commitment to diversity rewards the contributions of many types of individuals and makes us a stronger organization. We’re always looking for people with a variety of:

  • Backgrounds
  • Styles
  • Perspectives
  • Values
  • Beliefs

Supportive Work Environment

We support diversity by providing a positive work environment that values, appreciates and respects all individuals. We welcome differences, and employees are empowered to make decisions and voice their unique ideas.

Diverse Communities

Our mission and our actions demonstrate our commitment to providing high-quality, cost-effective health services to the diverse communities we serve. At the core of that commitment is our belief that the best way to care for people is to understand them.

Understanding different expectations, perspectives and cultures improves our ability to provide quality health care. Our diverse workforce helps us relate to people on a personal level. Seeing the uniqueness of each individual we serve helps us fulfill our commitment to improve the health of our communities.

Strategies for Success

Diversity doesn’t just happen. Here are some of the actions we take to incorporate a variety of individuals into our organization and effectively serve the many communities around us. To build diversity we:

  • Lead in creating and sustaining an environment that actively supports diversity.
  • Make diversity a long-term strategy, which includes awareness, skill–building and intervention.
  • Build strong ties to organizations that work to develop and support minority- and diversity-focused groups.
  • Publicize our involvement in diverse communities by sponsoring minority events.
  • Advertise in minority publications and attend job fairs.
  • Monitor recruitment, promotion and retention of diverse staff members.

Our success depends on the quality of our relationships between our employees, with our patients and with members of the communities we serve. Our diversity process enriches our efforts to build a healthier community.
