DIHL is a division of the Office of Community and Public Health. We drive Northwell Health's mission to promote, sustain and advance an environment that supports equity, diversity, health literacy and community. Strategies and principles of DIHL are essential to transforming the health and wellness of all populations.
As one of the largest healthcare organizations in the United States, Northwell Health is dedicated to providing exceptional care to all our patients. We serve the most culturally diverse communities in the United States and diversity is integral to creating a productive workplace that promotes inclusion and fosters talent.
At Northwell Health diversity and inclusion is weaved into the fabric of the organization. Our differences can be seen in the composition of our leadership, faculty, staff, and students; and are continually reinforced through our policies, practices and organizational structure.
Our ultimate goal is to deliver the highest quality care to all, regardless of race, ethnicity or cultural background, as well as language proficiency, literacy, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability or socioeconomic status.
