RWJ University Hospital Somerset: A Best in Class Hospital for Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity, inclusion, and cultural competency at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset are imperative to our mission of being a leading, nationally distinguished academic medical center. In our quest to ensure health equity and close disparities, we are mindful of all aspects of human differences, such as socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, geography, disability and age. We're working to foster a culture of inclusion that enriches our workforce, physicians, patients, families, partners and communities. At RWJUHS, valuing diversity acknowledges that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity. Inclusion begins with acknowledging the behaviors linked to creating a culture of dignity, innovation, and cultural effectiveness.
