Diversity & Inclusion

Inspired by Diversity.

Prisma Health is inspired by diversity. We believe that diverse voices, lived experiences and backgrounds nurture our workplace culture and lead to better communication, discussions, decisions and outcomes. Motivated by equity we thrive, and through inclusion we embrace and celebrate our differences. Because of our commonalities, we learn from each other, we grow, and we heal compassionately. There's a uniqueness, strength and creativeness in who you are. Collectively, our individual stories make us stronger and allow us to be the difference as we transform healthcare. When our team members succeed, our patients and communities succeed, and we are driven to support and assist every team member to feel visible, valued and welcomed. You belong at Prisma Health - let's innovate together! Prisma Health is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Learn more about how we celebrate and cultivate a diverse workforce here.

Prisma Health communities

"We must stand for unity, diversity, compassion, justice, and equality. As a Prisma Health team member, each one of us has made a commitment to care for everyone who comes through our doors no matter who they are, what they believe, or what they look like. Each one of us brings a different ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic and educational background to the team that adds a richness to who we are and what we do. By embracing this diversity, we become a stronger and more understanding organization which benefits all of our patients and each other."

Mark O’Halla, President and CEO

"Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”   
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
