A Culture of Belonging

At Ardent, we know people thrive when they feel respected and accepted as their true selves. That’s why we strive every day to create a culture of belonging for our patients, their families and one another.

With the support of our enterprise and local Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Councils, Ardent is focused on developing policies and practices to support a sustainable culture of equity and belonging for all.

  • For team members and providers: We are committed to cultivating an environment where everyone feels supported and differences are not only accepted, but celebrated.
  • For patients and families: We are working to provide equitable access to high quality healthcare across our communities and ensure that our team members accurately reflect the diverse populations we serve.
  • For partners: We believe in supporting local communities, including diverse suppliers and partners who share our commitment to equality and integrity.
