Mission and Principles

Central to Doctors Hospital of Laredo's mission is its commitment to excellence in serving patients — from providing an aesthetically pleasing environment to ensuring quality in medical care.

Every employee at Doctors Hospital receives service excellence training and personally pledges to put the needs of patients first. The staff takes pride in providing a safe and secure environment for patients. Every patient is entitled to privacy during their stay at the hospital and continued confidentiality about all medical information.

We are committed to providing healthcare services that patients recommend to families and friends, physicians prefer for their patients, purchasers select for their clients, employees are proud of, and investors seek for long-term results. We will realize this vision through our commitment to the following principles:

  1. Service Excellence – We will provide timely, professional, effective and efficient service to all of our customer groups.
  2. Continuous Improvement in Measurable Ways – We will identify the key needs of our patients, assess how well we meet those needs, continuously improve our services, and measure our progress.
  3. Employee Development – We understand that the professionalism and drive of our people are the most important factors in the quality of the service Doctors Hospital provides. We will hire talented people, increase their skills through training and experience, and provide opportunities for personal and professional growth within the company.
