INTEGRITY: Being in integrity does not simply mean holding true to your word with others and the position you committed to fill, it also means staying in integrity with one's self. Holding commitments to yourself, your family, the community and the service you provide.
LIVES ON PURPOSE: This shows the sweet spot where your intentions, personal values and vision of the business are aligned. Living on purpose shows we are being fulfilled through our responsibilities as an anesthesia provider, our interactions with the community, the vision of the business and working with fellow team members.
COMMUNITY: The team members' dedication towards serving the community to the best of our ability. Our focus should always be to heal and do no harm.
GROWTH: We are focused to constantly grow in knowledge to best serve our community, to always think of "what's best for the patient" and to treat accordingly. We are consistently brainstorming and thinking of "long-term" care and needs for the patient. When we cease to grow as a team, we cease to serve the community to the best of our abilities.
