Caring: Caring is to show concern and compassion for others; look after patients and their families and co-workers. BHH Team Members care deeply and it shows in their work, attitudes and actions every day in every way.

Compassion: Compassion is the understanding or empathy for the suffering of others. Compassion is the emotion that we feel in response to the suffering of others that motivates a desire to help.

Respect: Respect can be defined as consideration for self and of others. Respect includes consideration for other people's privacy, their physical space and belongings; and respect for different viewpoints, philosophies, physical ability, beliefs and personality.

Respect is both given and received. We expect other people to respect us in return for the respect we show them. This includes our patients and their families, physicians and each other.

Respect cannot be measured as a quantity. It cannot be bought or traded. It is one of those things that is earned and built over time.

Teamwork is a crucial part of BHH and it is necessary for everyone to work well together, trying their utmost best in every circumstance.
