Since 2018, the Division of Hospital Medicine does not see diversity and inclusion as just another program; instead, these concepts are woven into the fabric of our organization and are truly apart of who we are and how we work.

Diversity and Inclusion in Hospital Medicine

Our workplace encompasses diversity more than our ethnic differences between colleagues in our division. It is a rich tapestry composed of race, gender, ethnicity, age, personality, divisional function, education, experience and background that enriches the experience of all members of our division. At the division of hospital medicine, we strongly believe that the diversity in our workplace should mirror the diversity in the communities we serve.

We recognize that diversity throughout our system is essential in order to achieve our most critical goal: providing the highest quality of care for our patients. Maintaining a diverse work force ensures that our employees can relate effectively to our patients and their family members. It also directly affects our ability to attract and retain the most talented health care professionals. We believe that diversity, inclusion and individual empowerment is integral to the success of our division.

Mission and Vision

Hospital Medicine Diversity Commitment and Mission

We are committed to equity and inclusion with all of our patients and families, our physicians, our workforce, and the communities that we serve.

We will enhance our cultural competency by educating, recognizing, and celebrating the value of diverse cultures, beliefs, and identities.

Diversity Vision Statement

Hospital Medicine will be a national leader in diversity by advancing cultural competency, equity and inclusion with all of our constituencies.

Our Objectives

The Four "E"s are the pillars that we have selected as the foundation of our committee’s objectives:

  • Educate our leaders and employees with a focus that incorporates history, emphasizes our legacy, and leads to strategic governance, promotes equity and creates a climate of dignity and respect.
  • Examine and address any issues, policies and procedures that reflect bias, discrimination, racism or supremacy that may negatively impact patient care, employee inclusion and productivity.
  • Evaluate our current climate of racial and equity practices, and develop or use tools that collect data that reflect accountability going forward.
  • Encourage for best practices and next practices that enhance diversity, inclusion and equity.
