It is an industry in healthcare founded by Henry J. Kaiser and their headquarters are located in Oakland. The company is dedicated to ensuring that all of their patients receive equitable care. They work together as a team to set an example for leadership and proper communication. Kaiser’s number one priority are its patients. While in Kaiser’s care they focus on providing individual care as well as their own personal touch to ensure the patient feels at home and comfortable enough to rely on them. Treating each patient with dignity and respect as they would like the same. This company also embraces the art and science of nursing by integrating the ANA’s “Scope and Standards of Practice” making sure that they can ensure the best quality care for their patients. They treat their patients as an individual to be cared for and not a medical condition to be treated meaning they specialize in the care of their patients and hospitality.

I’m willing to provide time and effort into learning everything I can about their values. I can utilize my leadership skills to help others that also come from lower income communities companies who actually favor in providing the best health care for their patients.
