Our mission, vision and values represent all that MIHS accomplishes through our efforts to improve the health of our community.
Our mission statement is the first glimpse into our organization, and our first opportunity to represent ourselves to our patients, families, visitors and outside entities. The Maricopa Integrated Health System mission is: “To provide exceptional care, without exception, every patient, every time.”
Exceptional care captures our comprehensive approach and excellence in the provision of healthcare, training and research, while without exception ensures this care is exceptional … for every patient, every time. This is why MIHS exists.
The MIHS vision creates a 21st century model for patient care and medical education that improves access, quality, cost and outcomes for patients and increases the supply of future health professionals.
Our vision is: “Maricopa Integrated Health System will be nationally recognized for transforming care to improve community health.”

- Providing convenient, affordable quality care where and when people need it most.
- Integrating healthcare seamlessly into the lives of patients and consumers.
- Engaging individuals in their own care.
- Casting a stronger net of programs and services to keep all members of our community well.
Our values are essential and enduring beliefs that guide our actions every day. They describe what our organization believes in, and how we treat each other, our patients, families and visitors.
