Above all, Ardent’s leadership and caregivers remain true to the following core values:
- We are dedicated to meeting the health care needs of our patients.
- We treat patients, employees, physicians and others with respect and compassion.
- We partner with physicians to provide the best care possible for our patients.
- We work to foster a fulfilling and challenging workplace for all.
- We continuously seek ways to improve the quality of care delivered to our patients.
- We act with responsibility and accountability in the communities we serve.
- We expect 100 percent compliance with ethical and regulatory standards.
- We are dedicated to providing a fair return for our investors.
Every action we take at Ardent is built on three key tenets:
- Ardent recognizes that each hospital is as unique as the community it serves.
- We believe in working with employees and physicians to improve the quality of care, patient safety and customer service and we measure all three continuously.
- We reinvest in our facilities – helping our hospitals expand services, enhance technology and add new programs that fulfill their missions.
We believe it is this mix of corporate support and local autonomy that provides our hospitals with the tools they need to succeed.
