Diversity at AtlantiCare

AtlantiCare takes an inclusive view of diversity. We believe diversity to encompass more than the visible differences such as age, gender and race. Work styles, geographic location, and length-of-service, are examples of other diversity dimensions which enrich our workforce and allow us to be more creative, flexible, and competitive. These divergent dimensions foster opportunities for an increased range of learning, innovation, personal growth, and the delivery of superior culturally/community competent health care services.

Statement from Lori Herndon, President & CEO, AtlantiCare

AtlantiCare is continuously seeking to understand the unique healthcare needs of the various communities and cultures we serve throughout our region. While working toward our vision of building healthier communities, we are deeply committed to effectively caring for every individual we serve; understanding and respecting the unique needs of the lives we touch and eliminating healthcare disparities and barriers to treatment so we can further open access to care.

Thank you for visiting the Diversity section of our website. I hope you enjoy learning about AtlantiCare's diversity work and the many ways we demonstrate our commitment to eliminating healthcare disparities.

Be well,

Lori Herndon
