FCS Adopts New Mission, Vision and Values
Refreshed platform serves as a critical foundation for the future of FCS
Our mission, vision and values serve as the critical foundation for all that we do.
As Florida Cancer Specialists has grown and evolved in recent years to remain at the forefront of world-class cancer care and clinical research, executive leaders recognized the importance of revisiting this platform to reaffirm the company’s strategic direction.
“We have experienced immense growth and transformation in the past few years — not only in the number of practice locations, but in the types of services we have to offer and in our approach to care,” said FCS President and Managing Physician Michael Diaz, MD. “It is critical that we have the proper lens through which we look forward, make decisions and serve our patients and communities.”
After a months-long process that involved much thought, consideration and lively dialogue, FCS has introduced an updated platform that defines the company’s “why” and “how,” with a focus on excellence, patient experience and innovation.
“These are not just new words,” said FCS Chief Executive Officer Nathan H. Walcker. “Our refreshed mission, vision and values will serve to challenge and inspire each of us in the years to come.”
An interactive culture training program is being rolled out to all FCS physicians and team members to create a shared understanding of the new platform.
“We are investing time and resources to ensure that every FCS team member understands fully why we are here, what is expected of each of us every day and how our work contributes to the lives of those we serve and to the success of the organization,” Walcker explained. “With clarity and focus, our mission and values will become integrated into everything we do.”
“This refreshed foundation will be made visible to our patients and communities as evidence of our company-wide commitment to world-class, patient-centric cancer care,” Diaz noted. “At every touchpoint, FCS team members will continue keeping the patient at the center of all they do to confirm the many reasons why FCS is the best choice for community oncology care.”
