Working At Dignity Health


Dignity Health is a not-for-profit faith-based organization based in San Francisco, operating hospitals and clinics across Arizona, California, and Nevada. They deliver health care services based on the needs of the communities in which they operate. After a recent merger with Catholic Health Initiatives, CommonSpirit Health established itself as a national healthcare ministry focused on building healthy communities and advocating for vulnerable populations.

Sandeep Randhawa, Vice President of Human Resources, stated: "The aim is always to advance healthcare in our communities and innovate how we deliver care across the United States while shaping the future landscape of healthcare."

For Dignity Health, everything starts with their culture. Their culture of giving back to their communities guides them in everything they do.

"It's our culture that sets us apart from other organizations. What is unique about us is our employee experience offering purposeful work opportunities in a supportive environment. Working for a faith-based company, there is a sense of belonging and fulfillment that our employees really appreciate. It really starts with our culture."

Diving Into the Values at Dignity Health

Giving a Voice to Those Without One

"I believe the largest reason why we are such a great company to work for is because we're a faith-based organization that really aims to fill the gap between traditional healthcare needs and the needs of our communities. We really look to not only advance healthcare but really look to meet the needs of the poor and disenfranchised," Sandeep said.

Serving the disenfranchised, those without insurance, for example, is a big part of the Dignity mission. It's one way we demonstrate our values:

  • Dignity : Respecting every person equally
  • Collaboration : Working together with people who share a common goal
  • Justice : Advocating for social change and demonstrating compassion for those who are powerless
  • Stewardship : Cultivating resources entrusted to them to promote health
  • Excellence : Working to exceed expectation through collaboration and innovation
  • Sandeep pointed out that these core values are exactly why a lot of people choose to come work for Dignity Health. It isn't just another hospital, it is a cause. "You're not only working your particular job in a hospital, but you are also part of an organization that is concerned about social justice, that's concerned about the needs of the community at large," Sandeep said.

    The Culture of Giving Back

    Volunteer Opportunities Abound

    The Dignity Health culture is built on empathy, care and a strong sense of community. "On a program level, we conduct community-based assessments. We assess the needs of our communities and deliver on those needs by either sponsoring programs or offering services," Sandeep said.

    Another way that Dignity gets people involved is through their own volunteer programs. "We have a robust volunteer program in our hospitals, where not only can adults volunteer their time but we also have a great summer student volunteer program," Sandeep said. This allows students to explore careers in healthcare and get exposure to what we do. Dignity has seen students participating in their summer volunteer program, enrolled in higher education, only to return to our hospitals and communities as nurses or other allied healthcare professionals.

    Another example of where Dignity Health helps promote careers is participation in STEM Programs, encouraging young students to prepare for potential careers in healthcare.

    As far as the Dignity employee's work-life balance goes, "we focus on employee well-being, looking at it from a holistic standpoint addressing an employee's entire well-being." Sandeep said.

    The Benefits at Dignity Health

    Great Benefits from a Great Company

    Dignity offers its employees a very competitive total rewards program. Some of the more traditional benefits range from medical, dental and vision coverage to accidental and disability insurance. The company offers retirement and other voluntary plans. They offer maternity/paternity leave along with military leave and family medical leave.

    "We have a wonderful tuition reimbursement program," Sandeep said.

    The company also has a very competitive PTO policy, which goes hand in hand with its holistic approach to employee well-being.

    When a company does all the things that Dignity does for their communities, it makes working seem a little different. It doesn't feel quite so much like work, but more like a privilege.

    "Careers matter more with a company that really cares. That's the experience many expect from a quality organization" Sandeep said.

    The Organization’s Mission

    To provide high-quality, affordable health care to the communities we serve.
