Diversity

Diversity. The key to growing a strong and inclusive organization that’s built to last.
At BJC, diversity drives success. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is at the heart of how we work with each other, how we deliver care, how we partner with our community and how we do business. It’s no wonder why we value and embrace the wealth of diversity reflected in our patients, our employees and partners, and the many diverse communities we serve.

Diversity in our workforce.
Fostering diversity in the workplace is not only the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do. That’s why at BJC, we spend a great deal of time and effort fostering a more diverse, engaged and inclusive workplace for those who help make medicine better. After all, combining people from different backgrounds, experiences and beliefs breeds a more creative, innovative and productive BJC.

Diversity in the care we provide.
Across BJC, we share a strong and clear vision for a better kind of health care organization – one that ensures equal access to high-quality health care, regardless of race, age, ethnicity, religion or income. One comprised of a team that is sensitive to the unique cultural needs of our patients and their families. And, one committed to offering health care-related educational and career opportunities to all.

Diversity in our community outreach.
BJC is a dedicated community partner, working tirelessly to build strong partnerships with our community partners, and to authentically engage and support the communities we serve through community outreach/education efforts, employee volunteerism and donations/sponsorships.

BJC strives to improve the health and well-being of our employees, patients and community. As part of this commitment, we do not hire employees* who use tobacco or nicotine.
* Based on current state laws, this does not apply to those hired to work in our Illinois facilities.
