Our Mission, Vision & Core Values

We strive to behave as a Community First and a Company Second. That means creating a legitimately differentiated workplace where the Mission and Core Values live with unusual reverence and energy.

Our Vision: 


To Build the Greatest Healthcare Community the World has Ever Seen.

Our Mission: 


To be the Provider, Partner and Employer of Choice.

Our Core Values: 


Our Core Values- all seven of them- provide us with the set of guidelines to help us fulfill our Mission and Vision. See Our Core Values below.  We have an unwritten, but spoken eighth core value we call “GSD” which means Getting Stuff Done.

Service Excellence
Serving Others--our reason for existing. We continually seek to understand the needs of those who depend on us (our patients, doctors, and our fellow team members) and then to exceed their expectations.

Integrity
We say what we believe, and we do what we say. We are trusted because we are trustworthy. In our personal, team, and organizational values, we strive for alignment in what we say and do.

Team
One for All, and All for One!  We work together, sharing a common purpose, a common culture and common goals.  We genuinely care for and support, not only those to whom we provide care, but those with whom we work shoulder-to-shoulder. We work together to pursue achieving our Mission.

Fulfillment
We make a difference. We feel rewarded- personally and as a team- because what we do in our jobs is consistent with our goals and dreams. We believe “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” (Mahatma Gandhi). And, when you are the change, that’s fulfilling!

Fun
We enjoy what we do. We know kidney dialysis is hard work; but even hard work can be fun. We take our jobs seriously, but we feel a fun environment delivers better care to our patients while creating a better work environment for our teammates. We strive for excellence and we have fun.

Continuous Improvement
We never stand still; we are never satisfied. Individually, and as teams, we constantly look at what we do, and ask, “How can we do this better?” Then, we use a systematic approach to take action.

Accountability
We don’t say, “It’s not my fault,” or “It’s not my job.” We take responsibility for meeting our commitments- our personal ones as well as those of the entire organization. We take ownership of the results.
