We are clinicians motivated by the desire to make a purposeful difference in the communities we serve, and in how health care is delivered.

* People who focus on serving their team and the people they take care of by inspiring, including and holding themselves and each other accountable for everything they do.
* People who have the courage to commit, improve, and work with others to find solutions to help make this the best place to give care and the best place to get care.
