Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (HEDI)

Our goal is to foster an environment of absolute inclusivity.

Our commitment

At Marshfield Clinic Health System, we are fully committed to addressing health equity, diversity and inclusion for our employees and providers, our patients, and the communities we serve.

We believe that every individual should have the opportunity to attain their highest level of health. We embrace diversity and welcome differences in who we are and how we think. We believe that any individual or group should feel welcomed, respected and valued. View our Equity and Inclusion Statement here.

Our approach

Our Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity leaders have identified five key strategies that will shape and drive our efforts.

We will use data to promote social change and improve care.

We will assure that our staff and providers are trained and embrace cultural competency.

We will strive for a diverse and inclusive workforce, including leadership and governing entities.

We will partner with our communities to improve health equity and address disparities.

We are committed to an organizational culture that is diverse and inclusive to all.

Our progress

1. We signed the American Hospital Association’s Health Equity Pledge, making us one of four health care systems in Wisconsin to commit to eliminate health care disparities in our state. ​

2. We are developing an Ambassador program and Business Resource Groups to promote equity and inclusion in the workplace.  ​

3. We have formed a partnership with the Cross Cultural Health Care Program for cultural competency consulting and training.

4. We have formed partnerships to address social determinants of health of our patients by working with community-based organizations throughout our service area.  ​

5. We serve on the Governor's Health Equity Council​ and other State and National collaboratives to address equity. ​

6. We collaborate with public health and community based organizations across our service area to address health disparities. ​

“When I think of serving patients, my goal is always to address the entire person. Understanding what makes all of us unique is so important when thinking about providing holistic care. HEDI training helps all health care workers become more mindful of these differences. This growth and education translates to each patient getting the holistic, culturally-informed care they need, to attain their best health.”
