Our Commitment to Create Healthier Communities

At Memorial Hermann Health System, we are dedicated to celebrating our unique differences by fostering a culture grounded in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). In order to achieve our vision to create healthier communities, now and for generations to come, we are committed to increasing access to our high-quality health care services for all members of our community, empowering every employee with the skills and support needed to advance their career and cultivating a respectful, inclusive environment.

We made the intentional decision to refer to our efforts as Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, because health equity is at the core of our mission and vision. By leading with Equity, we recognize its importance in our work as an employer, a health care provider and a community leader, and we prioritize resources, support and opportunities for all.

With our values of Community, Compassion, Courage and Credibility leading the way, we embrace the diversity of our workforce, students and trainees, patients and community, lift each other up and hold our colleagues and leadership accountable for achieving our EDI goals.

Defining Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at Memorial Hermann

The just treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups. Equity in action means recognizing we all begin at different starting lines and helping someone along the way will always be the right course of action.

All the ways in which people differ, such as race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, culture, national origin, religion, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, education, marital status, language, and physical ability. It also involves different ideas, perspectives, and values. Diversity in action means every person feels safe and empowered to live as their authentic self.

Authentically including all individuals and/or groups into processes, activities, and decision/policy-making in a way that shares power, fosters respect, and embraces our diversity. Inclusion in action means every individual is valued for who they are and what they offer and that they have the opportunity and means to reach their highest potential.
