Since its founding in 1910, Western Massachusetts Hospital has exemplified the following organizational values:
Western Massachusetts Hospital employees believe in these values and strive to uphold them every day.
We are a diverse group of individuals who work together as a team to operate a public health care facility committed to providing quality care. We are especially dedicated to identifying and providing individuals with services not available to them in the community. Our concern for the dignity and well-being of our patients leads us to give special attention to their family and friends. We continuously strive to maintain the highest standards in everything we do. We challenge and support all employees to work cooperatively and with integrity.
Realizing each employee's potential enriches the Hospital community. By maintaining an atmosphere which is creative and innovative, we encourage each other to make a special contribution to excellence in patient care. All employees contribute to the successful operation of the Hospital. Our work together is successful because we respect and depend on one another. There is a free flow of ideas and information so that everyone is involved and valued. Individuals communicate clearly, honestly, and directly about concerns. Conflicting ideas are encouraged because they are seen as critical to challenging our thinking and providing the opportunity for new resolutions and positive change.
As a public health care facility, we collaborate with the community to identify deficiencies and gaps in health care services. We expand and change our programs, services and campus to respond to these changing needs in the community.
We believe that our primary responsibility is to provide care and services designed to enable patients to reach and maintain their highest physical, social, mental and spiritual well-being. We do this best when patients and their loved ones are actively involved in their care. We support these efforts by creating a homelike environment.
Everyone is treated with respect, dignity and compassion. We value diversity of ideas, opinions and cultures. This allows us to be a supportive and attractive environment for both the community and employees.
