HRMC – Building a Firm Foundation on Values
February 01, 2016
By: David Dick, HRMC President & CEO
Healthcare reform and changes are in the news every day, it seems. All of these changes create challenges for you, the healthcare consumer, as well as healthcare providers.
HRMC is determined to face those challenges for the benefit of our rural way of life. I am committed to continuously explore and adopt the values you and I hold as all-important.
Our more than 300 employees, physicians and volunteers are in the business of caring – every day, 365 days of the year. They help others to have a better quality of life.
I am proud of the many people who contribute daily to care for the needs of others. Their collective actions are important to this hospital, and a vital part of a hardy community. A big thank-you to all of them and to the community that supports them!
Our efforts include working with values coach Joe Tye, an Iowa-based consultant who helps hospitals develop their “invisible architecture.” This is a systematic process for making sure our invisible architecture of core values (the foundation), corporate culture (the superstructure) and emotional attitude (the interior) is as beautiful and as functional as the visible architecture of our buildings.
As we travel this journey, we will engage the community with a Community Health Needs Assessment process, focus groups and regular listening sessions.
I am also thankful for our partners and community – without whom HRMC would not exist.
