Diversity and Inclusion

Our diversity, equity and inclusion commitment

At Virginia Mason Medical Center, we commit to fostering and sustaining an equitable, diverse and intentionally inclusive environment where everyone feels valued, respected and a sense of belonging. Racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia and other forms of oppressive behavior have no place at Virginia Mason. We believe our unique life experiences and background fuel our culture of innovative, collaborative healthcare. Our diversity inspires a promising future.


Championing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in our workforce is a commitment we don't take lightly. We recognize that it is more important than ever to respect and reflect the many nationalities, cultures, religions, races, sexualities, backgrounds and beliefs that make the world a better place.

That is why we work hard to create spaces where our team members can feel comfortable bringing their whole self to work each and every day, knowing they belong here.

We are proud of our inclusive culture and know it is critical to who we are, how we work together and how we serve our patients and our community. We honor diverse perspectives and leverage differences to spark innovation and attract, develop and celebrate the talent we need.

Our team members know they belong here. You belong here, too.
