Inclusion, Diversity and Equity


Inclusion, Diversity and Equity

Unified by our purpose, strengthened by our differences.

Presbyterian is committed to an inclusive and equitable environment where everyone is valued and empowered for success. We believe that our environment should reflect the diversity of our community. We value diversity and inclusion and strive to treat all individuals with respect. We do not discriminate on the basis of race; color; ancestry; national origin (including limited English proficiency); citizenship; religion; sex (including pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions); marital status; sexual orientation; gender identity or expression; veteran status; military status; family care or medical leave status; age; physical or mental disability; medical condition; genetic information; ability to pay; or any other protected status. We value these differences and find strength in the diversity of our team and community.

Healthcare Equality Index - Leader

We are proud that all nine Presbyterian hospitals across New Mexico are recognized as LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality High Performers by the Human Right’s Campaign Foundation’s Healthcare Equality Index (HEI). HEI is a national benchmark survey that evaluates healthcare facilities on policies and procedures related to equity and inclusion of LGBTQ patients, visitors and employees. Presbyterian received the highest score in New Mexico and is the first healthcare system in the state with more than one hospital recognized.

CEO Action Pledge

The persistent inequities that impact our country and our community underscore the need for urgent action. As one of New Mexico’s largest employers, we stand together to ensure inclusion is core to our workplace culture and our business is representative of the communities we serve. In 2020, Presbyterian’s president and CEO, Dale Maxwell, took it one step further and signed the CEO Action Pledge for Diversity & Inclusion. Alongside more than 2,000 other CEOs, we’re committed to supporting and advancing an inclusive, equitable and trusting environment which includes:

  • Cultivating an environment that supports open dialogue on complex and sometimes difficult conversations about inclusion and diversity.

  • Implementing and expanding unconscious bias education and training.

  • Sharing programs and initiatives – including what works and what doesn't – with other CEOs so we can learn from each other.

  • Engaging our Board of Directors in the development and evaluation of inclusion and diversity strategies.
