Message from our Leaders
Our Commitment To Diversity and Inclusion
At University Hospitals, our commitment to diversity and inclusion extends to our employees, our patients, our business partners and to the communities we serve.
Northeast Ohio is home to one of the country’s most ethnically diverse communities, and we believe that our workplace should mirror that diversity. Maintaining a diverse workforce ensures that our employees and physicians are able to relate effectively to our patients and their families in a welcoming environment. It also enhances our ability to attract and retain the most talented health care professionals.
At UH, we believe that we have a responsibility to promote positive change by improving health care access and working to eliminate health disparities. Over a five-year period, UH fulfilled its pledge to dramatically improve health care access in northeast Ohio through our Vision 2010 strategic plan and investment in the community.
Going forward, we will continue to focus on reducing health disparities by advancing our recruitment, community engagement and supplier diversity strategies. All three are interconnected, and the success of one will impact the success of the others.
We pledge our continued commitment to enhancing the well-being of our communities and providing the best care for every patient, every time. Thank you for supporting University Hospitals and for your dedication to our mission:
To Heal. To Teach. To Discover.
