Houston Northwest Medical Center Becomes First Hospital in the Southwest Region Designated a Community of Respect™ Partner
Date:5/26/2010

Houston Northwest Medical Center has become the first Community of Respect™ Medical Center in the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL’s) Southwest Region.

Houston, TX (Vocus) May 26, 2010 -- Houston Northwest Medical Center has become the first Community of Respect™ Medical Center in the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL’s) Southwest Region. The Community of Respect™ program is an innovative, community-wide anti-bias initiative. As a Community of Respect partner, the hospital is joining numerous other community organizations, businesses and houses of worship to create more inclusive and bias free communities where everyone can work, play and pray.

“This initiative reflects our values of creating a work environment that recognizes different cultures and building a positive atmosphere for all employees and patients,” says Judy White House, chief human resources officer at Houston Northwest Medical Center. “Achieving and maintaining hospital effectiveness is enhanced through trust, respect and caring, which are three vital components of this program.”

The Community of Respect program is a nationally recognized, award winning, cross-cultural communications program that is based on the Anti-Defamation League’s successful No Place for Hate® school program. The Community of Respect program is designed to show participants how cultural values determine how individuals interpret the behaviors of others and how to effectively communicate with a person from another background.
