Our Mission and Values


Our mission

Our mission and constant priority is to serve the patient.

As a home care provider, we are caregivers in the patient’s own environment, employing all our knowledge, talent, resources, commitment, and compassion to promote health and independence, and support patients and families through illness.

As part of the Vanderbilt University Health Care System, we support its research and educational enterprises.

We provide a vital link in the continuum of care for patients and families in our health care system.

Our values

We are a community built on shared values and a common purpose. We are compassionate caregivers. We value respectfulness, whether in dealing with patients or with colleagues. We acknowledge that success depends on working well together.

We are guided by and committed to our mission. We value collaboration with patients and colleagues. We communicate openly and honestly. We treat others as we would wish to be treated. We strive to be fair and non-judgmental toward all. We value diversity. We each safeguard professional integrity, pursuing the highest ethical standards. We are each accountable for carrying forth our mission.

Scholarship and continuous learning are essential to our work. We value career satisfaction. We encourage new thinking and the search for new and better solutions. A spirit of innovation and the capacity and willingness to lead the way.

These qualities help to distinguish our organization.
