Vision and values
Healthy People, Healthy Communities
Eastern Health’s vision is Healthy People, Healthy Communities. This vision is based on the understanding that both the individual and the community have important roles to play in maintaining good health.
We work with the communities we serve, and partner with others who share a commitment to improving health and well-being, to help us achieve this vision.
Eastern Health’s core values guide the behaviour of all individuals in the organization as they provide services and interact with others. As the organization grows and evolves, so too should the principles that it stands for. Eastern Health’s core values have been updated to better reflect the views shared by its employees, physicians and the public.
