"The nursing culture at Oakwood Healthcare System is focused on providing excellent care to our patients and their families. That is why ROC (Relationship Oriented Care) is important. ROC is CREDO in action."


Our nursing culture supports the autonomy of nurses, recognizing that nurses uniquely understand the care continuum and intricacies involved in the management of the patient and their families. It is an essential philosophy that has nurses guiding the delivery of care and engaged in improving outcomes and inspired to impact positively all patient experiences.

The future of nursing practice at Oakwood Healthcare is focused on career growth, professional development and expanding all nurses to achieve their goal choices in education, evidence based practice, specialty practice and research. Coupled with the unbelievable talent of our nurses and highly supportive leadership, I truly believe that Oakwood nursing will continue to sore to great heights sky.

The Spirit of Healing Begins With Inspiration
Oakwood’s Mission is to provide excellence in care, healing and health to the individuals and communities we serve.

Vision
Oakwood’s credo is “Patients Come First” and our nursing operating vision encompasses both mission and vision through A visible community of nurses, engaged in guiding the delivery of care, inspired to positively impact our patient’s experience.

Philosophy of Care
With advances in healthcare and the changing needs of our patient population, there’s little doubt that the successful providing of care requires a specific direction. At Oakwood, we’ve adopted Relationship Oriented Care (ROC)… a philosophy for care and a method of delivering care that combines:

  • Patient and Family-Centered Communication
  • High Impact Team Practices
  • Outcomes Focused Care
  • Critical Thinking & Problem Solving
  • Supervision and Team Collaboration

ROC means we are living our values: Patients come first!
