Leadership.

Vision — Most Trusted Name in Health Care

When INTEGRIS decided to develop a vision statement for the organization, we wanted feedback from our most valuable commodity — our employees. More than 1,500 INTEGRIS employees were involved in discussions or surveys to develop our vision.

We feel it says a lot about who we are — we value trust as a guiding principle — and we aspire to be recognized for that. It is a big vision, but it is also a very personal one. From front-line to physician, from management to medicine, each of our employees can, and must, resolve to be the "most-trusted" in our given areas of responsibility, day-in and day-out. It is a commitment to one another as well.
