If New York City is the mosaic of cultures and ethnicities,
take one look at the faces of our staff. We are New York.
Our patients speak more than 180 languages, and so do we.
Our patients represent every culture, religion,
sexual orientation, and ethnicity, and so do we.
We make significant investments in training our staff to provide culturally responsive care. We teach our staff not to judge or generalize patients based on how they look. We teach them to look beyond the surface, to make decisions based on the person's background and not the color of their skin.
These faces of our beautifully diverse staff provide a glimpse into the complex issue of identity. They test our judgment and help us better understand the surprising difference between appearance and self-identity. Even more so, they celebrate the diversity of our workforce.
