Mission, Values and Vision

We’re Here to Serve

To provide you – our patient – with the best possible care takes the cooperative efforts of many different people doing many different jobs. Not only are there doctors, nurses, therapists and technicians to help you, there are many employees you may not meet face-to-face, such as registration representatives, security officers, medical records transcriptionists, telephone operators and secretaries, to name only a few. Plus, you will find our housekeeping staff keeping your room clean; dietary personnel preparing and serving your meals; and maintenance personnel who keep the hospital building and systems in operation.

But whatever job Bedford Memorial Hospital employees and staff are performing; they are doing it for you.
