“Yale New Haven Health has fully embraced not just the concept of diversity and inclusion but what it takes to make it part of the fabric of our organization. ” said Marna P. Borgstrom, CEO, Yale New Haven Health and Yale New Haven Hospital. “We designed a strategic approach that includes all aspects of our operations and fosters an environment of inclusion and respect. We believe this enriches both the patient and the employee experience, contributes to the quality of care we provide and supports the communities we serve.”
YNHHS continues to develop the diversity profile. YNHHS concluded 2019 as an organization comprised of 78 percent women and 36 percent people of color.
