Seattle Children’s Values

Compassion

Empathy for patients, their families and staff is ingrained in our history and inspires our future. We do more than treat the child; we practice family-centered care as the cornerstone of compassion.

Excellence

Our promise to treat, prevent and cure pediatric disease is an enormous responsibility. We follow the highest standards of quality and safety, and expect accountability from each other.

Integrity

At all times, we approach our work with openness, transparency, decency and humility. It is our responsibility to use resources wisely to sustain Seattle Children’s for generations to come.

Collaboration

We work in partnership with patients, their families, staff, providers, volunteers and donors. This spirit of respectful cooperation extends beyond our walls to our business partners and the community.

Equity

We embrace and find strength in the diversity of our patients, their families, our staff and community. We believe all children deserve exceptional care, the best outcomes, respect and a safe environment.

Innovation

We aspire to be an innovative leader in pediatric healthcare, research and philanthropy. We continually seek new and better solutions. Because innovation springs from knowledge, we foster learning in all disciplines.
