A Message from the CEO
As an institution of health and healing, people are at the heart of what we do. In healthcare, we are privileged to be able to serve people from all walks of life and from all corners of the globe. This provides us an opportunity to learn from others whose experiences may be different than our own. Each day we live diversity when a patient walks through our doors; we live the spirit of valuing diversity when we uphold our values of respect, integrity, compassion, and excellence.
As President and Chief Executive Officer of Miami Valley Hospital, I have seen firsthand the value that differences make. Open acceptance of differing viewpoints and perspectives is integral to our patient’s experience. I am committed to diversity as a lifelong process and not an event to be experienced in a one-time training session. I believe diversity is a long term strategy and that diversity is a journey of examining how our filters and lens may not reflect the reality and vision of others.
Miami Valley Hospital has a long standing history that reflects our commitment to diversity. While we have made a measure of progress throughout the years, we are not resting. Good is simply not enough but rather, we continue to ask ourselves how we can we be great.
We have partnered with our employees and the community in this endeavor and we have made a strong commitment commit to excellence as we continue to make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
Mark S. Shaker
