  • To provide the highest quality patient care in a cost-effective manner, while supporting the mission of the Medical Center to provide high-quality clinical care, through the recruitment and retention of diverse skilled practitioners and the creation of a learning environment that continuously improves the services with which we meet the needs of our patients.
