We updated our mission, vision and values in 2016 following a consultation process with patients, families and our workforce. This new version reflects who we are and what we aspire to be.
Results through caring, leading and learning together
Province-wide solutions for excellence in health, every time
We treat people as individuals with unique beliefs, values, lived experiences and cultural norms. We value diversity and seek, listen to and respond to suggestions for improvement. Patients and families are at the centre of all we do.
Whether it's caring for a patient, family member or colleague, being compassionate is fundamental to the work we do. We care about the health and well-being of one another and those we serve. We believe that simple acts of kindness matter.
As an academic health sciences organization, we achieve excellence through knowledge and innovation. We believe in daring to innovate in all areas of our work to provide the best care for patients and families. We encourage one another to be life-long learners. We learn from the experiences of patients and families and value their ideas.
Our provincial scope means we foster partnerships wherever possible to improve health outcomes. We collaborate with each other, those we serve and regional, provincial, national and international colleagues. We believe cultivating partnerships also means supporting patients and their families to make the health-care decisions that are right for them.
Our shared drive to make meaningful improvements in care helps to guide our services. We find joy through serving others. We believe that making a profound difference in the lives of others is our legacy.
