C-I-Care Philosophy

Before you apply for a position with Stanford Health Care, we'd like you to take a moment to consider the kind of employee you aspire to be. You may have already read about C-I-Care, the backbone of our hospital culture.

C-I-Care instructs us to:

  • Connect with people by calling them by their proper name, or the name they prefer (Mr., Ms., Dr.)
  • Introduce yourself and your role
  • Communicate what you are going to do, how long it will take, and the impact to the patient
  • Ask permission before entering a room, examining a patient, or undertaking an activity
  • Respond to a patient's questions or requests promptly; anticipate patient needs
  • Exit courteously with an explanantion of what will come next

There's a reason why the Hospital is known throughout the world for our excellence in patient care and innovation, You.

Please confirm that you agree with C-I-Care, and that you recognize the impact your contributions can have on everyone who comes to Stanford Health Care.

I'm new* to Stanford Health Care and agree with the C-I-Care philosophy.
