It’s time to reclaim the promise of high-quality healthcare—not as it is today or as it was in the past, but as it can be—to fulfill our collective responsibility to guarantee access to all.
Reclaiming the promise is about creating a healthcare system that puts patient care and safety above corporate profits.
Reclaiming the promise is about ensuring frontline caregivers and staff are well-prepared and supported so they can provide safe, efficient and high-quality patient care.
Reclaiming the promise is about ensuring healthcare institutions are at the center of the community, are responsive to the community’s needs and provide access to all.
Reclaiming the promise is about supporting healthcare systems that are designed to keep people well, not just to treat them after they become sick.
The promise is under attack by those who demand and pursue profitization, privatization and deprofessionalization of health services.
By uniting our voices—caregivers, patients, families and the community—we can reclaim the promise.
Together, we can help our healthcare systems become centers of their communities that make the needs of patients and families their highest priority. We must ensure that vital healthcare services are available to all.
I will Reclaim the Promise of High-Quality Healthcare.
