The Heart Principles: Honesty, Excellence, Accountability, Respect, Teamwork.

We welcome and seek an environment that is inclusive of all.

Honesty: Honesty, trust, fairness, and ethics are the true core of every decision we make and every interaction we have with our clients, business partners, and others effected by the results of our work. We value those who do the right thing even when it may not be most popular to do so. We will be clear about individual and collective successes and failures, without a sense of defaming one another.

Excellence: We are an organization which is led and driven by excellence in quality and science. We encourage a relentless pursuit for improvement and excellence with zero tolerance for mediocrity, while anticipating and preparing for future challenges, not just those of today. We understand and believe our success is dependent on the performance of our employees, and the quality of work delivered to our clients, and patients.

Accountability: Individually and collaboratively, we take responsibility for our decisions and actions, and for achieving our goals. We encourage individuals to take ownership of tasks, no matter how menial those tasks may be. We do not lack courage in appropriately voicing our opinions for decisions, whether large or seemingly insignificant, and take appropriate positive action when something appears wrong.

Respect: We demonstrate respect for each other, clients, healthcare professionals, as well the as patients we assist. We are guided by our continuous commitment to treating others as we want to be treated, and we will treat others as they treat us. We value and benefit from obtaining the opinions of a diverse group of individuals on each major task at hand.

Teamwork: Our working culture supports, encourages, and regularly requires teamwork, cooperation, and honest and timely communication to provide quality results of the highest caliber. We support each other to collectively and collaboratively advance the entire organization, and provide superior services or solutions to our clients in every aspect. We consider our flexibility to new ideas, views, and innovative approaches to problem solving as a team a key to our continued success. We treat our fellow employees, clients, and our patients with the trust and respect we want ourselves.
