Mission Health was founded and operates on the values of respect, integrity and trust for all whom we serve.
We are guided by our core values and our mission to improve the health of all people in the communities we serve and are committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for team members, patients and visitors of all races, religions and nationalities. As part of this obligation, Mission Health does not exclude people or treat them differently because of race, color, national origin, age, disability, gender or sexual orientation or identity.
Our unwavering commitment is to the continued service and support of our team members, patients and greater community, believing that health care is a basic human right for all persons living in or visiting the United States, regardless of their country of origin, immigrant or documentation status without fear of discrimination, penalties or harm.
Like all hospitals and health systems, Mission Health is required to comply with North Carolina state regulations that require all private persons to report incidents of child abuse and neglect, and the abuse, neglect or exploitation of the disabled or elderly by any caretaker. In addition, physicians and hospitals are required to report certain kinds of wounds, injuries or illnesses.
