Nursing Values


For many CHI Memorial nurses, nursing is their ministry. They accept the challenge of doing all they can to meet the needs of the patient and know at the end of each day that they are making a difference in people's lives.

At CHI Memorial, our philosophy of nursing care begins with our commitment to upholding CHI Memorial's mission and core values:

  • Reverence: Each of our patients, regardless of circumstances, possess intrinsic value from God and should be treated with dignity and respect.
  • Integrity: The nursing process is an integral part of our practice as professional nurses.
  • Compassion: Each encounter with patients and families should portray compassion and concern.
  • Excellence: Monitoring and evaluating nursing practice is our responsibility and is necessary to continuously improve care.
