Dignity Health Believes in the Power of Humankindness
Humankindness is fundamental to Dignity Health’s operations. This concept focuses on the healing power of human connections and acts of kindness. In our increasingly isolated and fragmented world, Dignity Health’s physicians and staff members strive to acknowledge our shared humanity in every patient interaction.
When patients and their families are treated with respect, compassion, and kindness, they benefit emotionally and physically. Positive human connections can boost the immune system, decrease blood pressure, and reduce stress levels. These and other factors can help restore and heal your mind, body, and spirit. Due to its commitment to the patient experience, it’s no surprise Dignity Health is consistently recognized for its patient safety programs, clinical outcomes, and technological advances.
