To be part of our organization, every employee should understand and share in the YNHHS Vision, support our Mission, and live our Values. These values—integrity, patient-centered, respect, accountability, and compassion—must guide what we do, as individuals and professionals, every day.

Patient Services Managers structure their activities to anticipate and respond to the impact of managed care and other market forces on health care delivery. They ensure that their unit(s) demonstrate superior outcomes, provide seamless delivery of care, and maintain competitive cost structures.
