Diversity Initiative

The vision of Barnes-Jewish Hospital along with our partner Washington University School of Medicine is to be national leaders in medicine and the patient experience. Our mission is to take exceptional care of people. We value integrity, compassion, accountability respect and excellence. As such, we aim to ensure that our patients have equal access to high quality health care, regardless of their race, ethnicity, age, gender, gender identity, language, socioeconomic status, sexual preference or any other diverse identity. As a national leader in health care, we will engage and develop a high-quality diverse workforce through recruitment and retention efforts. We are committed to providing education and training to our staff to equip them with skills and tools to provide safe care to our patients in a culturally appropriate, patient- and family-centered way.
