Human Rights & Health Equity Office
Dignity, worth, mutual respect, fairness — these are some of the key words associated with human rights legislation and with the Human Rights and Health Equity Office at Mount Sinai Hospital.
The Human Rights and Health Equity Office is designed to respond to the diversity of Toronto’s population. The Hospital is dedicated to ensuring:
- a positive and respectful work environment for all employees;
- equitable and accessible services for patients, families and visitors; and
- an inclusive, welcoming surrounding for all.
These goals are currently emphasized in Mount Sinai Hospital’s values and in existing policies related to harassment and abuse.
Promoting diversity and human rights within Mount Sinai Hospital helps us to respond effectively to the cultural and linguistic needs of patients. It helps ensure equal access to quality health care by diverse populations.
