Integrity We do the right thing, even if it is not the easy choice. We hold ourselves to high standards in the work that we do - this means we have a strong work ethic and do our jobs to the best of our abilities. We are honest, fair, and respectful to our patients, our community and ourselves.
Compassion and Caring Patients are always the focus and center of everything we do. Regardless of our role in the organization, we go above and beyond to provide services in a manner that lets patients know that we care deeply about them.
Trust It is absolutely important to us that our patients and our community trusts us. We will provide patient care and conduct our business such that they always do.
Transparency We are open and forthright with our community, our partners, and ourselves. Our community and patients have a right to know how we are planning for the future. They deserve to know how we are performing in the present, both financially and on quality measures.
Loyalty We are loyal to our patients, because we care about them deeply as our friends, family, and neighbors. We are also loyal to Wrangell Medical Center, and always act as excellent ambassadors of the organization. We treat each other with respect, and work cooperatively as members of a cohesive team.
Honoring Our Heritage We respect and remember our long history of caring for the diverse people in our community and region. We are committed to honoring this heritage by holding in the highest esteem our elders who came before us. We will focus on planning for our future so our elders can age in place, and maximize the potential that all patients may be served right here in the community.
Quality Above all, we provide safe, high quality health care. We strive for excellence in everything we do, regardless of whether or not it is related directly to patient care. We hold ourselves accountable for this excellence. We embrace growth and change that comes with constantly improving ourselves. We focus on creating strong systems, and do not blame individuals for outcomes related to weak systems.
Fiscal Responsibility We believe in the prudent use of our resources. We deliver high quality services in a manner that is cost-effective while not compromising our services. Good stewardship of our finances benefits our community in the form of improvements and expansion of the services available.
