“We believe our ability to deliver high-quality, reliable care depends on all our employees feeling supported and cared for and being at their best,” Dawson said. “We try to remind our teams that ‘It’s OK to not be OK.’ We provide an abundance of programs and resources to support employees when they are not OK, and we continually evaluate and enhance as needed.”
Texas Health received the Excellence in Health Equity Award for its work ensuring that all employees can reach their full health potential. The distinction was given to companies that incorporated diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) into their health and well-being strategies.
Texas Health’s DEI focus includes policies, hiring practices and training programs that reinforce a commitment to creating a workplace where diversity is celebrated and inclusion exists at all levels. At Texas Health, an advisory group makes recommendations and offers insights on improvement opportunities. They have provided valuable feedback on topics such as celebrating cultural holidays, providing equitable growth opportunities for nurses and building an inclusive approach to helping consumers navigate the healthcare system.
