We build a supportive culture of pride, fulfillment, and a sense of belonging for all, while becoming the best place to work, learn and grow. We also deepen our relationships with the communities we serve and innovatively address the most pressing community health needs. We achieve this by:

  • Supporting the career development of all team members
  • Fostering a culture of “yes” and innovation
  • Creating a workforce that is diverse and inclusive and resembles the communities we serve
  • Opening new community-based neighborhood clinics and outreach sites that address our community’s needs
