Commanding Officer's Philosophy

 

My Command Philosophy underscores our motto, “Guarding the Health of the Fleet” and is to serve as guidance for all Naval Health Clinic Lemoore staff.  Navy Medicine’s strategic priorities of Readiness, Health and Partnerships and Our Navy Core Values of Honor, Courage and Commitment serve as the foundation of our mission and will ensure Naval Health Clinic Lemoore’s focus on delivering high quality healthcare.  Naval Health Clinic Lemoore exists to ensure the readiness and health of the Warfighters and their families, and we are honored to serve the retired heroes in our community.

Our PEOPLE are professional Sailors and Civilians and are our foundation.  We are a healthcare delivery team comprised of diversely talented and experienced military and civilian staff across Lemoore, Fallon, and Monterey, and we value each and every member and their contributions.  As a values-based organization, treating everyone with dignity and respect and functioning as a team are essential to accomplishing our mission.  We must take care of ourselves and each other to ensure we are a healthy and ready force, able to ensure the health and readiness of our Warfighters and their families. 

We represent Navy Medicine’s finest!  We all have committed to service, we honor our Oaths and commitments, and we take PRIDE in who we are and what we do.  To ensure a medically ready force, we must be a ready medical force.  We will continually learn, train, develop, mentor, and pursue excellence as a high functioning team.  We will celebrate our successes and face challenges together.  We will maintain a high level of professional standards and expertise, achieve and maintain a high degree of competency and skill, and explore innovative ways to ensure our maximum readiness to deliver the highest quality healthcare our Nation’s Heroes and their families deserve.  

PROFESSIONALISM is an essential component of our character, underpinned by our Navy Core Values of Honor, Courage and Commitment.  We must consistently act with personal integrity and high standards, and contribute towards our organization’s integrity through our actions, teamwork, and collaboration.  We will hold ourselves and each other accountable.  We will pursue High Reliability and excellence in all we do, deliver high quality healthcare to those entrusted to us, and consistently strive to earn the trust of those with whom we encounter each and every day.  We will foster collaboration internally and externally and value our community partnerships and their role in maximizing the health of our patients.
