    Our Vision

    Einstein Brilliance and Compassion In All We Touch

    By ‘Brilliance’ we mean...

    to treat with dignity and respect; to have a deep and human understanding of the feelings of others and a motivation to act to alleviate or reduce suffering.

    By ‘Compassion’ we mean...

    at every level of our being; the internal working relationships of the organization and the individuals, populations or communities with whom we live and interact.

    Few situations impose the intense vulnerability and dependency of illness; it is an honor and privilege to be let into someone’s life when they are so vulnerable and to assist in decision-making that has such extensive and profound consequences for our patients, their families and communities. We must always respect the privilege of being so intimately involved in the quality of health of our patients and act with a reverence for their circumstances. We must also show each other similar respect and honor the professionalism that we bring to the work every day. At Einstein, healing is the process by which we restore physical and emotional integrity to a patient’s life. It may not involve a ‘cure,’ but may simply be a bringing into balance or providing comfort, whether for body, mind, spirit or community.

    Our mission includes relentlessly reaching for the most comprehensive and incisive knowledge, whether related to science, problem solving or humanness. This may require looking outside your own fields of endeavor to find answers, or collaborating with a diverse group to seek new solutions.

    We see education – the seeking and imparting of knowledge – as critical to our mission of healing. Everyone in our Network should see themselves as both an educator and a lifelong learner, whether with peers, professionals or patients. Illness is a real-time phenomenon and healing is a time-limited phenomenon. Regardless of the outcomes desired – curing or comforting – it is essential that our operations be organized to anticipate needs – for a diagnostic test, a therapeutic intervention, a clean operating room, or napkins in the cafeteria – and to respond in a timely manner.
