It is important that everyone who walks through our doors feels safe, valued and above all, cared for. Our purpose of Extraordinary Caring, for every person, every time calls for us to treat one another with dignity, respect, and compassion.
Our staff, physicians, volunteers, patient partners, and learners come from a variety of different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs. Their experiences and expertise are integral to our ability to provide high-quality, safe care to all members of our community.
Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee is made up of staff, physicians and patient partners from across Niagara Health who work to support a more diverse, equitable and inclusive environment.
As a strategic priority for Niagara Health, a renewed DEI plan has been developed and approved by our Board of Directors. This plan includes training on cultural awareness and unconscious bias, consultation with patient partners, review of NH practices and expanded outreach in our recruitment efforts.
We're still early in our journey. There is much work to do, and we will continue to listen and learn, and seek advice.
Our purpose is driven by the guidelines established through the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion.
