Our Culture of
Every Moment Matters

As we continue to align our care team on how we can be our best, we have developed a framework for our culture around safety, quality and service at GW Hospital.

The George Washington University Hospital is committed to being a safe, diverse and inclusive organization for people of every race, background, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation and religious affiliation. As part of this, GW Hospital is proud to have a Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council (DIAC) that reports directly to our CEO and is designed to promote and enhance all of the voices and perspectives of our workforce.

This new framework, called Every Moment Matters, represents our inclusive definition of patient experience: service, safety, quality, our employees and patients' loved ones. All of these components and people working together in alignment is what will help us reach excellence.

Every Moment Matters is about all of us doing the right thing for every person, every time. Whether that is supporting a loved one, following a safety process, mentoring a new employee, or coming up with a new and higher quality way to deliver care, recognizing that Every Moment Matters is how we will be our best.
