A Message from Leadership

Together, we are a mosaic of beliefs, races, genders, abilities and ages. Henry Ford Health System truly represents a microcosm of the world outside its doors. Working together, we offer an environment of inclusion for our patients, our employees and the communities we serve.

We are dedicated to providing superior quality, culturally competent health care in which all patients and their families feel safe and respected.

Equally important is that each employee is valued for their differences, and provided with opportunities to grow and contribute to the System's mission and vision.

At Henry Ford, diversity touched everything we do. It can be seen in our workforce and in our physicians. It can be seen in our supplier base and in the quality and safe care we provide our patients. It also is found in the innovative and leading edge medical research we do as well as the many community programs our System provides benefiting all who live in southeast Michigan.

Henry Ford Health System is more than a collection of individuals with unique characteristics. We all come together in a mosaic that brings health care to our diverse community. We fully embrace our role in the community as a trusted partner, and support all efforts to achieve healthcare equity and the best practices in diversity and inclusion.

It's an evolving process, as we continue to build strategies that strengthen and expand the System's diversity. We're on a road where diversity isn't destination, it's a journey. And we're taking it together.
