What a difference a year makes! We are so proud that everyone at Lakeland Regional has taken our Promises to heart and is putting them into action in ways that are literally making the world take note. Together, we are creating an engaged and internationally recognized workplace that is changing lives.
- to treasure all people as uniquely created
- to nurture, educate and guide with integrity
- to inspire each and every one of us to do our very best
To create these Promises, members from many different service areas came together as a team and entered into deep analysis and philosophical discussions to ensure that our compassion, caring and clinical excellence are truly reflected in our Promises.
Today, these Promises serve as the foundation for our culture of relationships and caring. Every day, our team members live our Promises to treasure, nurture and inspire our patients and their families, ourselves, and our community. Our Promises have lead us to experience tremendous growth and opportunity in how we learn with one another, engage one another and support one another while providing exceptional care to the patients and families we are privileged to serve.
The hard work of the Lakeland Regional team this past year is garnering some impressive attention. Just last month, Lakeland Regional Medical Center was named one of thirty-six recipients of the 2014 Gallup Great Workplace Award, which recognizes companies throughout the world who have achieved engagement excellence for their extraordinary ability to create an engaged workplace culture.
As you pass through the halls of Lakeland Regional Health System and meet with our greatest assets, our people, we hope you will take note of and comfort from the Promise statements that we display prominently and proudly.
Our commitment to live our Promises and model the culture of relationships and caring is stronger than ever because those in our care deserve our utmost.
