Core Values
High-quality patient care
We seek to provide an evidence-based structure and process for the care of the critically ill. Our care should be safe, effective, efficient, patient-centered, timely, and equitable. Our approach is metric and outcomes driven. We continually strive to refine and refocus our efforts to improve patient outcomes and care.
An educational environment
We believe that the best care is delivered in an educational environment.
We seek explanations for clinically relevant problems and strive to find and develop new and innovative solutions so that our patients are assured of receiving leading-edge care.
Patient, family and surrogate satisfaction
We strive to identify all patients, family members and surrogates and attempt to understand and honor their value. We pledge to measure and monitor levels of satisfaction with the care we provide and to continually improve service satisfaction.
Ethical practice
We value reliability, trust and integrity in all aspects of our work.
We strive to create a culture of safety.
