Mission Statement

Our Reason for Being We push past the expected to create something different and meaningful. Our people and the unique mentality we all share are what differentiates us. Where some see impossible, we choose to see possible so we can improve the lives of every person in our community. Delivering on the idea of "pursuing impossible" doesn’t just happen. Our values shape the actions and behaviors that make us who we are, which is: Personal, Imaginative, Agile and Connected.

Description

Like with everything we do, our name speaks to our reason for being and what makes us unique. We're continually striving to move forward by improving every day and pushing past the status quo in all we do. Because we strive to redefine the expected, Nuvance Health is changing assumptions by challenging traditional healthcare experiences.

It's this mentality and genuine truth that inspired our name-Nuvance Health. Derived from a combination of the words "new" and "advance," our name symbolizes the great change that is underway. It's a significant piece of our story and helps us communicate who we are and where we are heading.
