Our Values

We believe in the value of Excellence.
Therefore, we will never use the words good enough, and we’re not afraid to start over if it means a superior outcome.

We believe in the value of Innovation.
While we appreciate the value of tried and true methods, we’re also comfortable turning current thinking upside down.

We believe in the value of Integrity.
Therefore doing the right thing in the right way is the norm, not the exception. This means the little things, when no one is watching, and the big things, when no one can look away.

We believe in the value of Respect.
Therefore, we give it freely and equally to all people whom our organization touches.

We believe in the value of Strong Relationships.
As such, we are always transparent about our goals and objectives when working with others.

We believe in the value of Stewardship.
Therefore we say thank you often, and in many ways. We know that donors could choose to support any charity – but they’ve chosen this hospital, and they should feel good about doing so.
