Diversity & Inclusion

The area we serve is demographically, economically, and socially diverse, with prominent communities of color and LGBTQ individuals, among many others. People in the Pioneer Valley speak many languages, follow many beliefs, and adhere to many creeds. We know from experience a diverse group of individuals leads to the understanding and celebrating of each other’s differences as strengths.

At Cooley Dickinson we are committed to achieving an environment of inclusion and equity that respects, affirms and leverages the rich backgrounds and life experiences of the Pioneer Valley’s multicultural communities. We recognize that excellence in all aspects of care and service delivery can only be achieved when staff, patients, and residents genuinely connect and engage across cultures to create health equity.

As part of our commitment to foster a diverse group of healthcare professionals, we encourage individuals from underrepresented communities to apply. You are welcome here.
