At Washington Regional Medical Center, we are dedicated to providing quality, patient-centered healthcare that is accessible to all. Our promise to the communities we serve is to deliver healthcare that heals – and that commitment is deeply rooted in all our thoughts, words and deeds.
Healthcare is a calling of compassion, not merely a job or a paycheck, no matter what role a team member plays in our health system. Patients and their families expect us to care for them with compassion. This requires the commitment of every team member to approach our work with positive attitudes and thoughts and in doing so, aligning ourselves to our common mission.
Our thoughts alone will not achieve our mission. We must dedicate ourselves to speaking with compassion and respect in every word we say to our patients, their families and to everyone we work with. Only when our thoughts and words are aligned can we begin to act as one team, cooperating with our healthcare providers, patients and their families to provide the best care and service possible anywhere.
Our deeds are the outward expression of what our thoughts and words say about us as caregivers and individuals. Thinking and speaking with compassion and respect become obvious through our deeds. If all stand together, think, speak and act the way we want to be thought about, spoken to and treated, we will attain our goals.
If we believe the most important act we do every day is to demonstrate compassion for each other and our community, our mission is simple and clear. If we think about what we do with a positive attitude, our words will be encouraging and our deeds will be compassionate. With delivering healthcare that heals through thought, word and deed as our mission and the cornerstone of everything we do, we will care for our patients, their families and our community with compassion, respect and empathy.
