EMHS Strategic Intent 2017 - 2020


Delivering continued excellence through a shared vision and values

Our Vision

Healthy people, amazing care.
Koorda moort, moorditj kwabadak.

Our vision captures the essence of what we do and what we inspire each other to do every day – show compassion, dedication and professionalism.

As a health service which celebrates diversity of culture and languages, it is also important that our vision could be shared in the Noongar language.

Our Values

What we do makes a difference to the lives of the people in our community, and our values reflect how we expect each other to conduct themselves every day:

Service delivery principles

Over the next three years, our service delivery principles will guide the development of our longer term strategic plan, which will involve a comprehensive consultation process across all areas of our organisation.
