Roper St. Francis is proud to create an environment of diversity and inclusion, because we believe that a culture made up of varied people and ideas helps us to achieve our mission of: Healing all people with compassion, faith and excellence
We believe every patient is a unique individual with needs, hopes and expectations about his/her healthcare. We celebrate the diversity our teammates bring to our workplace. That is why we strive to develop an atmosphere that values each person’s cultural, spiritual and emotional needs.
Commitment to Our Teammates and Patients
We recognize that different perspectives are not just a strength, but that they play an essential role in our ability to grow. Roper St. Francis is committed to promoting a culture of inclusion, where differences are respected and barriers to equality and inclusion are removed.
The vibrancy and opportunity of the Charleston area is attracting new residents from all over the world. As the demographics of our patient population change, we are offering more healthcare interpreting options, such as TranPerfect, as a means to support equal access to care for individuals who are deaf or who have limited English proficiency.
Along with different languages, our diversifying patient population also brings unique cultural beliefs, values and expectations regarding healthcare. With our continued focus on patient safety, we are creating an organizational environment which provides culturally appropriate care to all patients.
