Mission

Mission Statement

Marshall Medical Center proudly serves the Western slope of El Dorado County. Our mission is to promote health improvement and provide health services of extraordinary value and quality to our community.

Values and Principles

We at Marshall have dedicated our lives to healing. To that end, we are a community within the larger whole. The Marshall community -- employees, medical staff, volunteers, and directors -- embrace the following values and principles:

Our patients come first. All other values are overshadowed by the proper care of those who entrust their lives to us. It is our duty and privilege to care for our patients, and we care for them with dignity, respect and compassion.

Medicine is a science. Therapeutics at Marshall are based on the Medical Staff’s oversight of the application of the best medical science. We strive for continued improvement in all aspects of patient care, pursuing growth in our collective expertise. Excellence in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease are defined by documented clinical outcomes.

Healing is an art. Scientific medicine flourishes best in a healing environment.
In a healing environment, our patients and their families are an essential part of the health care team. We empower them through our support, our example and our teaching. To enrich our healing environment, members of the Marshall community treat each other with the same respect we hold for our patients.

Our hospital is not defined by walls. Our hospital is defined by the doors we open. The community is best served by a continuum of care, wherever those services are needed. We must reach out to emphasize primary care, prevention, education and collaboration with other organizations when their missions complement our own.

We bequeath this hospital to future generations. Our community is best served by institutions that are locally owned and managed. To maintain our independence and meet the present and future needs of the hospital and the community, we manage Marshall’s finances prudently. We compete on the basis of value; striving to maintain the lowest costs and prices in our market. We view it as sound financial strategy to strive for uncompromising excellence in health care.
