Diversity & Inclusion at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare
Diversity at Wheaton is recognizing and valuing all people, both our differences and our similarities. Wheaton recognizes that its strength comes from the dedication, experience and diverse talent of all associates. Wheaton fosters an inclusive work environment that provides all associates the chance to work to their full potential in pursuit of the Mission, Vision and Values of Wheaton.
Wheaton is committed to meeting the needs of the diverse patient population we serve. Wheaton values each person as sacred, created in the image and likeness of God, which gives worth and meaning to each person’s life. Wheaton honors diversity in practices of faith, traditions and culture.
Diversity encompasses all the ways in which human beings are both similar and different. By employing associates who understand the health beliefs and practices prevalent in the community, we can help patients feel welcome and better understand their health care options. This in turn allows us to deliver the highest quality healthcare with compassion, while maintaining the dignity of patients we serve.
At Wheaton, we utilize our “likeness” and “differences” to continuously improve services, strengthen programs and increase community participation. We are proud to have talented and skilled associates from diverse backgrounds who embrace the needs of our patients.
