We Prioritize DEI

Our vision for Diversity, Equity, and inclusion is deeply ingrained into our organization because DEI is the catalyst to progress. Our goal is to transform community health care for the better, and for that, DEI is crucial because it:

  1. Builds goodwill and a positive reputation within the community;
  2. Expands our appeal to a significant segment of the population;
  3. Inclusivity makes for better business;
  4. Levels the playing field;
  5. Provides a tax incentive;
  6. Protects against legal action;
  7. Healthcare accessibility makes life easier for everyone; and,
  8. It’s the right thing to do.

The Delaware Valley Community Health Inclusivity Council Charter

Serves as an advisory committee to senior leadership, identifying current challenges and emerging opportunities regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion at DVCH. The Inclusivity Council Charter is responsible for providing strategic recommendations to enhance employee well-being and the patient experience within the organization.

Cultural Humility at DVCH

Cultural humility in healthcare means delivering effective, quality care to patients who have diverse beliefs, attitudes, values, and behaviors. This practice requires systems that can personalize health care according to cultural and linguistic differences. In general, our Inclusivity Council receives reports on JDEI issues and actively responds. The information and reports received by the Inclusivity Council are oftentimes used for training staff and improve the employee and patient experience overall.
