Our Values

  • Make Every Interaction Meaningful
    Act with a servant’s heart. Our culture is something that we grow through action, not words. Let’s be intentional in our actions to serve those around us. We make it a point to say hello, know patients and colleagues by name, and ask how they’re doing. This is the Baxter Difference.
  • Be Extraordinary Everyday
    We’re always on the lookout for opportunities to be exceptionally unique, authentic, and uncommon with our actions. When we engage, we engage fully. When we act, we act with intention. Everything we do, we do wholeheartedly. Our extraordinary efforts leave patients and families with memories they’ll cherish forever.
  • Provide Service Beyond Measure
    We use every moment as an opportunity to leave an indelible mark on our patients and each other. It’s our promise to one another to faithfully seek out new knowledge and perspectives that challenge our embedded views on health and wellness. Only by embracing these experiences (and sometimes setbacks), can we arrive at a deeper level of understanding, and more informed relationships with our patients.
  • Comprehensive Care By Design
    We aren’t just one hospital, but a family of interconnected healthcare facilities and providers that offers head-to-toe compassionate care. For every patient who walks through our doors, we have a doctor or specialist who’s prepared to win trust, treat illness, and deliver them back to ordinary life. Treatment could start here and now – or a few counties over. At Baxter, where there’s a diagnosis, there’s direction.
  • Treat Everyone Like Family
    We are a huge part of the communities we serve, and likewise, they are a huge part of us. Therefore, it’s critical that we remain community-minded in all that we do. Whoever needs our care, be they a neighbor, old friend, or someone just passing through town, let’s treat them like family. Providing compassionate care that feels like home.
  • Always Take Ownership
    While compassion and excellence are the heart and soul of our organization, pride is the backbone. Every day, we live up to our Magnet status and stellar reputation by putting the Baxter Difference into action. We lend a hand when help is needed. We show leadership in times of uncertainty. We make patients, colleagues, and communities better – simply by being Baxter.
  • Independent With A Purpose
    Because we’re independently operated, we are able to act quickly, decisively, and in the best interest of our staff, patients, and surrounding community. Less red tape. More open doors. No unnecessary corporate mandates. Only compassionate care. Trust and transparency is simply how we operate. In good faith, and for the greater good of our Baxter family.
  • Think As Many, Act As One
    We share a common purpose: to significantly affect every life we touch in a meaningful and positive way. Our ability to sustain this impact is derived from our commitment to working in the same direction as one. Though we’re each accountable for our own responsibilities, each of us must recognize our role and reliance on each other in achieving operational excellence. Through this interdependence, we’ll not only work harder, but also work smarter.
