Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)


Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)

At Munson Healthcare (MHC), we believe in a culture where our similarities and differences are respected and celebrated. Our purpose statement is "We Improve Lives," and fostering an inclusive environment for all people is centered in our work.

At MHC, we value and embrace what makes each human being unique. Patients and employees of MHC deserve equitable care and treatment whenever they walk through our doors, and we want to create an environment of inclusivity for all.

MHC has a duty to honor all individuals regardless of and not limited to race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, religion, neurodiversity, gender, physical attributes, and languages. MHC will demonstrate its commitment through:

  • Providing equitable care to all patients regardless of their unique qualities;
  • Establishing MHC as an open and non-judgmental place for all;
  • Being an inclusive and caring organization from our patient's and employee's perspectives;
  • Recruiting and developing a pipeline of talent and retaining a diverse workforce that shares our vision; and
  • Increasing our commitment to developing meaningful partnerships with community organizations that represent diverse groups in northern Michigan.

MHC has established a Leadership Task Force. The MHC DEI Leadership Task Force joins MHC leadership in a commitment to further develop and actualize the vision of inclusivity. The Leadership Task Force is made up of MHC Executive Team Members, Providers, Managers, Directors, and Frontline Staff representing a cross-functional group of employees who meet monthly and set and execute on goals around DEI initiatives both internally and externally.
