BJC | As health care providers, we often see firsthand the effects of anxiety, stress and fear in people. We see this in our patients, their families, our communities and each other. And, it’s important to remember while we, as health care providers, are here to take care of patients, we also need to take care of each other.
Our BJC shared principles include demonstrating trust, dignity and respect; high ethical standards and behaviors; teamwork and accountability. It’s critical that we live by these principles and support each other. All 31,000 of us, across 15 hospitals and multiple community health locations, are what makes BJC so special. Together, by respecting and caring for each other, we can make a significant difference across our communities.
So how do we do this?
To start, consider taking the opportunity to reach out to a colleague you feel might need a little extra support. Be the change you want to see in our communities, and show your colleague that while each of us is different, our differences are what make us collectively stronger.
Our BJC leadership team remains committed to working individually and collectively to continue to reflect the values of our mission, vision and shared principles. We are committed to doing everything we can to always provide you with the ability to ask questions, express concerns, show support or ask for help in an environment that upholds our values of respect and dignity. Please reach out to your HR partners, your leaders or EAP if you ever need help in any way.
