Core Values


Honesty:  We will strive to communicate honestly, respect others, be fair to everyone, and maintain a down-to-earth approach in our efforts to interact with each other and our communities.

Excellence:  It’s how we think and act.  It’s more than just fixing a problem; it is prompt responses, consistent communication, quality information, and a focus on providing superior customer service each and every time.  Our Excellence never rests, it is what drives our commitment to our communities.

Accountability:  We don’t say, “It’s not my fault,” or “It’s not my job.”  We take responsibility for meeting our commitments – our personal and those of the entire department.  We will demonstrate a commitment to accountability for our communities’ health through stewardship of time, resources, and talents.

Respect:  We see and celebrate the value in ourselves and others.  We treat all others the way we want to be treated.

Teamwork:  As a team, we are driven by collaboration, respect, communication, and accountability while recognizing that everyone has their own unique role that must be respected and appreciated.  We genuinely care for and support, not only those to whom we provide care but those with whom we work shoulder to shoulder.  One for All, and All for One!

Service: Serving others is our reason for existing.  We will continually seek to understand the needs of those who depend on us and then to exceed their expectations.
