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.

Marshfield Clinic Health System is committed to improving the overall health and well-being of our employees, patients, business partners, and communities we serve by strategically focusing on health equity.

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

3.

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

4.

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