A journey of opportunity.

Diversity & Inclusion

HealthEast welcomes the diversity of our patients, their loved ones, employees and providers. We are patient-centered and culturally responsive and we value the beliefs, values and practices of the community and our workforce.

At HealthEast Care System diversity encompasses obvious human differences and similarities such as age, gender, physical ability and race, as well as subtle differences such as life style, work style, religion, culture, sexual orientation and education.  

Our faith-based and culturally responsive care philosophies support diversity and inclusion; we value and respect the individuality and diversity of our patients, employees, providers and others with whom we interact.  

Diversity is a strategic advantage that allows each individual to contribute uniquely and to their fullest potential. By leveraging our diverse strengths we create an environment of engagement, respect and inclusion and contribute to our vision of providing optimal health and well-being for our patients, our community and ourselves.

Equitable care – a holistic approach

Our equitable care philosophy offers a holistic approach to caring for both our patients and our employees. Our patients come from many races and cultures, speak many languages and practice many religions. HealthEast's workforce also reflects these attributes and we are a stronger organization because of our diversity.

We strive to be an employer of choice for all Minnesotans, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, membership or activities in a local commission, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age or genetic information. We know that employees who feel valued and appreciated can create a dynamic work environment where everyone can be fully engaged and productive.

Respect for one another and cultural intuitiveness provides an opportunity to explore our cultural differences as well as the unique skills and abilities we bring to HealthEast.
