Baxter Health nursing leverages the primary care delivery system to ensure our practice is autonomous, collaborative, interprofessional, and relationship - based with our focus on Patient/Family Centered Care. All decisions, plans, and approaches solicit the voice of our key customer – the patient. When making changes, we take into account the preference and impact of care on the patient first, with the impact on staff and physicians as important partners. Through the lens of the patient’s well-being, safety, and choice we determine what, how, when, and why we do what we do.

Nurses commit to teamwork, trust building and trustworthiness, and a forward-thinking search for and discovery of yet unknown possibilities of best practice. Our greatest imperative is to serve.
