Mission, Values & Ethics
We carry on the healing mission of Jesus Christ by promoting personal and community health, relieving pain and suffering, and treating each person in a loving and caring way.
We respect the dignity and appreciate the worth of each person as demonstrated by our compassion, caring, and acceptance of individual differences.
We choose to serve the community and hold ourselves accountable to exercise ethical and responsible stewardship in the allocation and utilization of human, financial, and environmental resources.
We value the involvement, cooperation, and creativity of all who work together to promote the health of the community.
We build and evaluate the structures of our organization and those of society to promote the just distribution of health care resources.
No matter what your position is in PeaceHealth, you are confronted daily with ethical challenges. What is the right kind of person to be and what is the right thing to do as you go about your work? Sometimes the answers to these questions are easy. You draw on PeaceHealth’s core values, your own personal values, your family, your particular religious tradition or perhaps the code of ethics or standard of practice for your profession.
The PeaceHealth Ethics Department within our Center for Mission can help you identify and access people and resources at PeaceHealth to assist you with your ethics and concerns.
