Organizational values act as a compass to guide us as we make decisions, interact with each other and our patients, work to find innovative solutions, and provide the best care possible to our patients and their families.

In short, organizational values support our mission of improving the health status of all children and enable us to realize our vision of being the first choice for children’s health.

  • Ownership--We are the pediatric care experts and act knowing that every patient, visitor and the hospital is our collective responsibility.
  • Collaboration--We work collaboratively to care for children, their families and each other.
  • Innovation--We continuously innovate to make Dayton Children’s even better today and into the future.
  • Equity -- We strive for an environment in which all feel welcomed, valued and fairly treated in order to reach their full potential.
