In June 2007, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital introduced a refreshed mission statement, along with revised vision and values statements from MedStar Health (the vision and values are shared by all MedStar organizations). The MedStar Georgetown mission statement was derived after a thorough process which included seeking input from focus groups with representation from nurses from all levels of the organization.
To provide physical and spiritual comfort to our patients and families
in the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis,
caring for the whole person
To be the trusted leader in caring for people and advancing health
We strive to anticipate and meet the needs of our patients, physicians and co-workers.
We strive to deliver the best to every patient every day. The patient is the first priority in everything we do.
We communicate openly and honestly, build trust and conduct ourselves according to the highest ethical standards.
We treat each individual, those we serve and those with whom we work, with the highest professionalism and dignity.
We embrace change and work to improve all we do in a fiscally responsible manner.
System effectiveness is built on the collective strength and cultural diversity of everyone, working with open communication and mutual respect
