Command Philosophy Statement
Our mission is focused on readiness – medical readiness of Service members and their families, and the skills readiness of our staff. While we employ many different knowledge sets, skills, and tools to accomplish the mission, we subscribe to four ideals that build the foundation for everything we do – readiness first, integrity always, empowered leaders, and respect for others. Every member of this command has something unique and valuable to contribute to the mission and to the lives of others, and no individual is any more important than another. I challenge every member of the command to reflect on how these ideals connect to your individual duties and responsibilities, how they will enhance your development as a person and as a leader, and how they will help the command reach the next level of excellence in everything we do.
Readiness first. Readiness is why we exist and must be the focus of everything we do as a military health care organization. Ensuring the medical readiness of those we serve and enhancing the readiness of our medical force are interdependent. When making decisions, readiness bears greater value in balancing mission requirements.
Integrity always. We do the right thing, even when no one is watching. Our actions on and off duty are aligned with Navy core values, our professional oaths, and ethical standards. We have the courage to speak up and help others to do the right thing.
Empowered leaders. We work at the speed of the problem by employing critical thinking and making informed decisions within the scope of our knowledge, experience, and authority. We seek input from those closest to the problem, and in unfamiliar situations we ask for help to learn and grow.
Respect for others. We give respect to all who cross our paths, both up and down the chain of command and to those whom we provide care. We use respect to overcome bias, build trust, and grow as a team.
