Diversity & Inclusion Information | Henry Ford

Diversity always will be the foundation on which Henry Ford Health System stands. We value and embrace the wealth of diversity reflected in our patients, their families, our workforce and partners, and the many diverse communities we serve.

DiversityInc top 10 Hospital Systems award 2013

The story of diversity at Henry Ford Health System is told through the unique experiences of our stakeholders. While experiences differ, diversity is leveraged to directly or indirectly influence the equitable delivery of culturally appropriate care and treatment of our patients, employees and community partners which include our suppliers.

We employ a Diversity Lens of seven distinct filters:

  • Workforce
  • Workplace
  • Health and Health Care
  • Marketplace
  • Structural
  • Behavioral
  • The dimensions that extend beyond race, ethnicity and gender

Our ability to anticipate, inquire and respond to the dynamics of an ever-changing world -- reflected in our team member standards of excellence and leadership competencies -- will ensure a memorable experience of health and wellness in an environment that embraces and leverages the wealth of diversity for our patients, employees and community partners.
