Integrity is a fundamental operating principle to most organizations –
to most people. Without integrity, there's little trust. Our work
as caregivers at Rideout must be built on integrity. Patients and their
families trust us with their lives. And while we have faced some recent
hurdles that have called into question our processes, we are moving forward
with the unwavering commitment to provide our patients with the honest,
dedicated and high-quality care they expect.
People want to work for and partner with organizations that demonstrate
a strong ethical culture.
We know rebuilding trust takes time – and commitment. This is also
a promise to our patients that we will do the right thing every time.
I believe we have the right leadership, medical professionals, staff and
structure in place now to deliver on this promise. Consistent, quality
patient care is our foremost priority. This means creating an infrastructure
to support processes and procedures that include a high standard of quality
care and compliance with all regulatory obligations while serving the
needs of those we care for daily.
We hope that through this organization-wide commitment to quality and compliance,
we earn the honor of caring for our neighbors and community members and
becoming the trusted healthcare leader in the Yuba-Sutter community.
To be viewed as a strong hospital externally, we must be a strong organization
on the inside. Just as our heritage showcases our rich history, our employees
and the values we live by are the backbone of our organization –
carrying on the ethical work practices built over decades of service.
By treating our customers, patients, suppliers, co-workers and the communities
we serve with respect and integrity, Rideout can lead by example.
Whether it's our 1800+ + employees and physicians serving communities
across the Yuba-Sutter region or the relationships we develop, everyone
represents the Rideout name and each one helps deliver on our deep heritage,
our promise to patients – and our future. Ensuring that our values
and standard ethics and code of conduct are consistently adhered to and
never compromised is a priority for everyone – regardless of what
role we each play across our hospital.
