As a leading clinical care provider, we have a responsibility to uphold principles that advance health inside and outside our walls. That means leveraging our influence, cultivated over more than 100 years, to continuously improve outcomes for those we serve, building stronger communities and leading the way in our field.
By creating space for diverse perspectives and experiences from all, we help ensure that kids, families, employees, physicians and leadership feel supported and seen.
Our Statement on Diversity
Children’s welcomes and appreciates everyone, regardless of gender or gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, national origin, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, religion, health status or family composition. Our goal is to be a place where people feel valued for their professional and personal contributions, and to be a model for standing against discrimination, and standing for diversity and inclusion.
We demonstrate our commitment to diversity in our employment policies and practices, training programs, benefits, recruitment and in how we communicate — because we firmly believe everyone deserves the right to be seen, heard and respected in an organization free of discrimination.
We will deliver the same high level of service and respect to each of our patients and their families throughout our communities. We will enhance the lives of the children we serve by ensuring that every child and every family feels welcomed, valued and understood in our trusted and caring environment.
Creating a brighter future for Georgia’s kids also means caring for the planet they will inherit. Our teams are incorporating a variety of practices and programs to help us continuously improve our environmental stewardship. These efforts include tactical plans to reduce our environmental footprint as well as innovations that focus on conservation.
At Children’s, we strive to create safe, healthy and welcoming environments both within our walls and within our community. We take a holistic approach to caring for our team and addressing the needs of children in our community.
Promoting a healthy workforce through employee wellness
In many ways, working at Children’s is a calling. But even those who feel called to this special work have endured an extra dose of stress over the last few years. Our promise — People First, Children Always — reminds us to constantly find ways to uplift our workforce, supporting their mental and physical well-being.
Focus on physician wellness
When our physicians take care of themselves, they’re able to provide better care for our patients. Led by our Chief Physician Wellness Officer, Dr. Will Border, we are implementing programs to help prevent the threats of physician burnout and stress at every angle, all while fostering resilience and providing excellent patient care.
