CHRISTUS Health has long recognized the importance of diversity and inclusion. These fundamentals not only underpin our core mission, they also guide our interaction with patients, associates and the communities we serve.
To guide and champion these efforts, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion focuses on training and education, recruitment and retention, equity in care, community partnership and supplier diversity and creating accountability across the board.
At CHRISTUS Health, we define diversity as "everyone and everything with no one and nothing left out." We recognize the worth of each unique human being, and respect personal differences because they strengthen us collectively.
We care about every person who is part of our mission. Our definition of inclusion is "engaging all who participate in our mission." At CHRISTUS, we believe it is critical that each person is able to contribute their best talents, skills, abilities and experiences. We are committed to fostering and encouraging growth and opportunity for all. Creating an inclusive environment is directly linked to our performance, profitability and success.
Our mission here at CHRISTUS Health is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ for ALL. Our patients' receive treatment that includes caring for each part of their total being. We strive to ensure each patient gets culturally and linguistically competent care tailored to their unique needs.
Through our continued focus on excellence, we embrace CHRISTUS' sacred name and seek to create a culture in which our mission and core values are truly exemplified, ensuring that the lives of those we serve are sustained and strengthened by the care we provide.
Unique individuals united in the spirit of excellence . . . united in a mission of healing. That's CHRISTUS Health.
