Little Rivers Health Care Mission
Our mission is to provide respectful, comprehensive primary health care for all residents in our region regardless of their ability to pay for them. We offer quality health care services to everyone. In the spirit of community, we reach out to and welcome those who need health services but have insufficient means to access them. We commit ourselves to continually reduce the burden of illness, injury and disability, and to improve the health and function of the people in our region.
Heeding the call to improve the quality of health care services throughout the country, we believe that all health care organizations should pursue six major aims; specifically, health care should be safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient and equitable.
Our services always focus on the patient as the decision maker and center of control. We listen. We freely supply understandable information based on our awareness of the best scientific knowledge. We foster ongoing healing relationships and tailor our care, as best as we can, to the individual needs and wishes of our patients. We act in ways worthy of the trust that our patients and the community place in us.
