Over the last few weeks, we have watched the upheaval in our society elicited by the brutality against African American members of our community. In the midst of a pandemic, and at a time when our country and the world should be united, it is abhorrent that our nation continues to demonstrate racial injustice towards people of color.
We recognize that this is a challenging time for both our employees and patients of color, as they face challenges that few of us can truly appreciate. We want to make it absolutely clear that racism has no place at Premier. We will not tolerate any racist language, acts, attitude or disparate treatment of our employees or our patients.
To our employees of color, we stand against racism. We pledge an environment where all employees are empowered to excel and live up to their full potential. To our patients, we pledge equal and timely treatment for all patients, and do our part to eliminate racial bias in the medical system.
Diversity in our employees and in the patient’s we treat is paramount, and we strive to do this without regard to race, gender, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or mental ability.
We are committed to standing up for what is right and just, and we invite everyone to freely reach out to us with insights, suggestions and feedback so that we may realize this mission together.
