Message from our CNO
"Our vision is clear - To create a destination hospital where employees choose to work, physicians choose to bring their patients and where patients seek their care. Moving forward is ever so important in our constantly changing health care universe wherein data transparency and value based care drive an increasing number of hospital decisions. Since the quality and reliability of nursing care outcomes are central to the discussion, our performance must be reflective of positive movement toward those goals and our vision."
