At Oakwood, we strive to create an environment where individual differences maximize our collective capabilities as a team and an environment of care that welcomes diversity, respects and values all persons.
This environment is enhanced by our ability to respond respectfully and effectively to people of all cultures in a manner that recognizes, affirms and values individual differences and similarities while preserving the dignity of every person.
Oakwood serves growing multi-cultural and diverse communities with growing populations of the elderly, racial and ethnic minorities. Culturally competent healthcare systems that provide culturally sensitive and language appropriate services have the potential to reduce disparities in health care, improve health outcomes and increase consumer satisfaction.
