Respect & Dignity

Respect & Dignity

We listen to and honor your family's culture, perspectives, and values in planning and delivering your child's care.

Office of Health Equity and Inclusion

Our mission is to improve care and patient satisfaction, while being respectful and mindful of each family's specific opinions and needs based on their race, ethnicity, language and socioeconomic status.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care staff and volunteers are trained to respect the religious commitments of all of our families, as well as those who do not identify with any particular religion — providing comfort and support as you cope with your child’s illness and hospital stay.

Interpreter Services

We provide foreign language interpreters (and Sign Language interpreters whenever possible). We strive to provide translated forms, educational materials and signs as available, in order to communicate more effectively with our patients and families. Learn More »
