Since our founding in 1984, Athena Health Care Systems has encouraged and promoted a culture focused on developing and preserving diversity, equity, and inclusion – for our residents and their families, and our team of caregivers. Athena believes that the diversity of our caregivers allows for better care of our long-term care residents and short-term care patients. Throughout our daily work, our patients, residents, and their families put their trust in our hands. And, by doing so they deserve to always be treated with the utmost respect and compassion.
We embrace our employees’ differences in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our employees unique.
The collective sum of the individual differences – life experiences, knowledge, beliefs, unique abilities, and talent that our employees invest in our centers and affiliates represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and accomplishments.
All employees within the Athena network have a responsibility to always treat co-workers and their patients, residents, and families with dignity and respect. Employees who believe they have been subjected to or witness any kind of discrimination that conflicts with our mission should seek assistance from a supervisor, human resources manager, or their administrator.
