Heywood Hospital

Diversity Vision:

Our vision is to support the success of health care reform, eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities, promote wellness, manage chronic disease and build public health capacity locally within the service area of Heywood Hospital which includes the following:

Gardner, Ashburnham, Winchendon, Westminster, Templeton, Baldwinville, Hubbardston.

As we continue to meet the needs and expectations of increasingly culturally and ethnically varied populations, a better understanding of cultural differences and their relationship to quality service, respect, inclusiveness, and sensitivity becomes essential. Diversity includes all differences, not only those pertaining to racial and ethnic distinctions. We must work to address the particular needs and concerns of specific populations such as African American, Alaskan Native, American Indian, Asian, Black, Hawaiian, Hispanic, Latino, Pacific Islander, as well as the elderly, the disabled, and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender {GBLT} communities.
