Health Equity and Value

Advancing health equity and eliminating health care disparities for all is a key priority for the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity. Unfortunately, far too many racially, ethnically and culturally diverse individuals face barriers and unconscious biases when it comes to their ability to connect with health professionals and hospitals to ensure their safe delivery of care.

Ensuring that essential, high-quality health care services are available in all communities should not be impacted by socioeconomic conditions, background or merely by your ZIP code. We believe hospitals and health systems have a great opportunity to improve the health of individuals and partner with the communities they serve.
