Good Afternoon My Jordan Health Family:
Over the past weeks, months, and years you have seen and heard messages from me regarding Jordan Health’s stand against racism. We must ensure our patients as well as our colleagues and co-workers feel welcomed and understood.
I remain committed to fostering an environment free from discrimination, prejudice, and racism of any kind. As I have previously mentioned, we know that hate does not discriminate against black or brown people but against any skin color or culture that appears to be “different” from the majority.
As a result, you will begin to see signs posted around each of our sites supporting our anti-racism message. It is important to note these signs and similar statements of equality and inclusion, such as “Black Lives Matter,” should not be tampered with in any manner, including defaced, removed, torn, or erased. These behaviors do not support Jordan Health’s values and our anti-harassment and discrimination policies and will result in appropriate corrective action up to and including termination of employment.
Together, I know we can nurture a culture of inclusion where everyone is welcomed and treated with respect and dignity.
United and Still Standing!
