Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)

We ensure that all patients have equitable access to quality care regardless of their background or characteristics. We recognize and respect diversity among patients, addressing any barriers that may limit access to care and creating an inclusive environment where all patients feel welcomed and valued.

Key aspects of patient DEI in healthcare include:

Access to Care

Ensuring all patients, regardless of socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, or other characteristics have access to quality care

Cultural Competency

Understanding and respecting the beliefs, values, and cultural practices of diverse patient populations

Language Access

Providing language access services, such as interpreters and translated materials, to ensure all patients can communicate effectively with their healthcare provider

Inclusive Environment

Creating a welcoming and inclusive healthcare environment that respects and values the diversity of all patients
