Healthy People | Vibrant Communities



We take our responsibility to ourselves, each other, and the NSCH Community very seriously. We understand our individual roles, and positions of power with respect to how others perceive our roles and actions. We hold ourselves accountable when we make mistakes–acknowledging the error, owning it, taking corrective actions, and moving forward. We follow through on what we commit or resolve to do.


Integrity is the foundation of healthy relationships. We are committed to the highest ethical standards: honesty, fairness, respectfulness, and trustworthiness. We are honorable and respectful in dealings with others, and we strive to deal honestly, fairly and in a respectful, ethical, and trustworthy manner when in agreement or disagreement.


Empathy is a deep appreciation for another’s situation and point of view, which is the basis for the golden rule and our intrinsic sense of justice. We strive to bring empathy into our interactions with each other and with our patients.


We see courage as the strength of character to stand up for our convictions and belief system. To have courage is to have the fortitude to take risks and to extend one’s behaviors, actions, and thoughts beyond one’s comfort zone. We appreciate that courage is often required to compromise. Courage is a state of mind to face adverse, difficult, and challenging situations with confidence and positive energy.


NSCH holds its patients in the highest regard. We provide care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient needs and values. We take the time to listen to concerns, understand what is important, and provide appropriate solutions and care. We do this through coordination and integration of care, collaboration, and teamwork.


NSCH is committed to the health and well-being of its community, patients, and staff. We demonstrate this commitment by constantly striving to align our actions with our mission, vision, and values.
