Department of Medicine Leadership
We at Hennepin Healthcare are committed to equity toward all people. Racism and discrimination violate our values as an institution and run counter to our work to save lives and improve the health of our community. As a healthcare system, we are healers at heart and truly believe we are here for life. We will remain vigilant in our efforts to level the field for health equity and improve health outcomes for those we are here to serve.
