MISSION AND VISION
Drawing from military medicine, the doctors who founded Cleveland Clinic believed in diverse specialists working and thinking as a unit. Their mission was: “Better care of the sick, investigation into their problems and further education of those who serve”.
This cooperation, efficiency and shared vision has fostered excellence in patient care, research and education ever since, and the principles endure today at Cleveland Clinic locations around the world.
COMMITMENT TO PRINCIPLES
As a global organisation, we are committed to the United Nations Global Compact. This is a policy initiative for businesses committed to aligning their operations and strategies with universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.
With more than 9,000 corporate participants and other stakeholders from more than 160 countries, it is the world’s largest voluntary corporate citizenship initiative.
In 2008, Cleveland Clinic became the first healthcare provider in the U.S. – and the second in the world – to become a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact.
Cleveland Clinic’s culture is built around working together to provide the best possible care to our patients. That’s why everyone who works at the Clinic is a ‘caregiver’, because no matter how big or small the task, every part of our operation as a healthcare leader relates back to the patient and their experience.
Our 66,000 employees share the same values across all of our global locations:
