About Christiana Care

The Christiana Care Way

The Christiana Care Way is our promise to you — and to each other:

“We serve our neighbors as respectful, expert, caring partners in their health. We do this by creating innovative, effective, affordable systems of care that our neighbors value.”

As a not-for-profit health system, our mission is one of service. We believe that the key to providing truly great health care is to partner with our patients and their families, building a system of care that is effective, affordable and valuable to everyone who is touched by it.

How do we know what is valuable to our patients? We ask. And we listen. We understand that medical expertise is fully effective only when it is paired with respect and compassion. And we understand that the way to help our neighbors to get well and to stay that way requires that we take the time to learn about who they are, what they want, and what they need.

The Christiana Care Way is also an invitation to you. As a patient or a visitor, or as a member of our community, we welcome you as a partner. Tell us how we’re doing, and let us know if you’ve had a good experience or if you see an opportunity for us to do something better.

We invite you to learn more about The Christiana Care Way. You can find out more about why each word was chosen. And you can see it in the smiles and dedication of our physicians, nurses and support staff, who exemplify The Christiana Care Way every day.
