LifeBridge Health Honored for Excellence in Diversity

LifeBridge Health was awarded the 2010 James W. Rouse “Excellence in Diversity Award” by the Chesapeake Human Resources Association’s Diversity and Inclusion committee.

According to the CHRA, LifeBridge Health has demonstrated a superior effort to promote diversity and inclusion through wellness, community outreach and company policy. The award was presented to Taylor Foss, vice president of Human Resources at LifeBridge Health, on June 16.

“At LifeBridge Health we embrace a culture of inclusion and mutual respect by valuing the unique contributions of each employee,” says Foss. “That’s our Diversity Vision Statement
and it is reflective of our rich history—when the Hebrew Hospital and Asylum became Sinai Hospital in 1920, it was the only hospital in the city where Jewish people and people of color could work and get care. We are fortunate to have senior leaders at LifeBridge who are committed to continuing our comprehensive approach to diversity with initiatives focused on our workforce, our suppliers and on the communities we serve.”

An extraordinary group of passionate employees at LifeBridge Health make up a Diversity Council. The Diversity Council is helping LifeBridge create an environment where all employees can be their very best.

“I am honored and humbled to accept this award on behalf of LifeBridge and all our employees who are making a difference,” Foss says.
