A Statement from Silver Cross Hospital on Racial Injustice
As an organization whose mission is to improve the health of those we serve and advance wellness in our community, Silver Cross Hospital stands together with communities of color as we fight against systemic racism and the resulting inequalities that are so deeply ingrained in our society.
We join those who are outraged over the senseless death of George Floyd and other individuals of color and unequivocally condemn prejudice, discrimination and injustice of any kind.
At Silver Cross, we realize that social and economic well-being are often factors that impact the health of individuals and communities. That’s why we remain committed to addressing issues of health disparity wherever they exist and improving access to care for all.
Our values of Safety, Inclusiveness, Leadership, Virtue, Excellence and Respect leave no room for racism, intolerance or injustice. We have watched our organization come together to battle COVID-19, and we will continue to come together to be a voice for those who need us most.
To our communities of color, we hear you, we join you in the fight against racism, and we will do all that we can to ensure a better future and advance the health of all people.
