Mission statement for hospital

Below is a comparison you did for me on May 17th with Pocahontas and Mayo Clinic at Minnesota. Please read through what you wrote and create a new mission, vision, values and goals for Pocahontas Memorial Hospital. Maybe you can somehow combine the two to make one for each. Thank you!

You may notice that the Mission statements of both hospitals talk about education. As mentioned earlier, the Mayo clinic has more financial backing, so it also highlights research in its Mission. Although it's a nice thought for PMH to mention it wants to be the health system "of choice", I would not recommend that being part of their Mission statement because it is the only choice for many in the community, otherwise, it would not be a CAH facility. Perhaps it would be more appropriate to revise their Mission statement to remove that piece, but instead focus on providing the best quality of care for its customers. I like how it refers to its patients as customers by mentioning "good customer service". In addition, both health systems strive for integrated health care. PMH cannot be what it cannot afford, for example, a top-notch research facility with an excess of specialists staying by. However, its Mission statement should build upon its strengths, serving its community and truly caring for its patients. Both hospitals list "Excellence" as a core value. I think this is very realistic goal at PMH, mostly because it also listed the item "Use Measurement to Diagnose Problems and improve Processes". This tells me that there is desire (and hopefully commitment as well) to work efficiently. This will be important for a CAH facility, which typically has resource constraints.
Other than the goal to be the facility of choice, I really don't see any major changes I personally would make to the Mission, Vision, or Goals of PMH. They seem consistent with everything I saw on their website. The staff at PMH appear to be living up to those promises. However, per the findings of the Community Health Needs Assessment, PMH will need to make some adjustments to account for changes and additional needs of its community.
