Mission & Values

The physicians and staff of The Baton Rouge Clinic are committed to providing the highest level of quality healthcare services for the patients and families we are privileged to serve. Furthermore, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive services for the entire family while meeting the changing healthcare needs of our community – continuing the tradition of caring that our organization has upheld since 1946.

We believe that successful organizations are driven by strong values. As such, The Baton Rouge Clinic has established a set of values that guide our organization and define our culture. As active members of our community, we strive to uphold the following values every day and in all of our endeavors.

Clinical Excellence

Because our primary purpose is the practice of medicine, clinical excellence is of the utmost importance at The Baton Rouge Clinic. We expect our physicians to practice the highest quality of medicine – and that is why we seek doctors who have excelled in their education and training and have demonstrated superior abilities. We also expect our physicians to obtain and maintain board certification in their specialties and subspecialties – and they must obtain at least the minimum of continuing medical education (CME) required. Just as importantly, we expect our physicians to be leaders and expert practitioners in their field. In addition, we expect high quality work from our ancillary medical staff, administrative staff and our entire team. Each team member is expected to develop, maintain and continually improve the knowledge and skills necessary to provide exemplary care for every patient who entrusts us with their care.

Compassion

As healthcare professionals, we are dedicated to preventing and relieving human suffering. As such, our job extends beyond medical treatment and must include a sense of compassion and empathy for our fellow man. Expressing compassion for our patients, their family members and loved ones is a crucial part of the healthcare experience. By always demonstrating compassion for the people we serve, our entire team recognizes the importance of this value in our daily work.

Integrity

Our commitment to integrity means that every member of our team must always deal honestly and openly with others. We are honest about our abilities and about our limitations. We do not mislead our patients or their families. We comply with laws and expectations regarding our practice of medicine and our business associations and dealings.

Fairness

At The Baton Rouge Clinic, we strive to treat everyone with whom we interact fairly – from patients to employees, physicians and the entire Baton Rouge community. We believe that fairness also encompasses respect, dignity and treating others the way you wish to be treated at all times.

Community Service

We greatly appreciate the support of the many families in our community who choose The Baton Rouge Clinic for their health needs – and we are honored to give back to our community in return. As a healthcare organization, we recognize the importance of contributing to the betterment and well-being of our community – and we strive to fulfill this obligation in many ways. Individually, many of our physicians are actively involved in community organizations including churches, synagogues, scouting, volunteer boards and the Greater Baton Rouge Community Clinic, just to name a few.
