SUMMARY At Dignity Health, one of the nation’s largest healthcare systems, we believe that all people deserve access to quality medical care regardless of their background, ethnicity, or circumstances. Healing is our calling, and “Hello humankindness” is our brand purpose, which supports our mission to deliver compassionate, high-quality, and affordable patient-centered care with special attention to the poor and underserved. Through teamwork and innovation, faith and compassion, and advocacy and action, we endeavor every day to keep our patients and staff members healthy and fulfilled. This article highlights efforts at Dignity Health to reduce burnout and increase resilience in our employees. Our team is focusing on evidence-based interventions and strategic partnerships to tackle these complicated issues.
