Mission, Vision and Values
The Philosophy for Patient Care is shared and supported by all employees at Inspira Health (Inspira). Each patient is recognized as an individual, within the context of the family and community. Using the Neuman’s Systems Model allows the Department of Nursing to provide a holistic patient care delivery approach that strengthens the patient’s reaction to environmental stressors by addressing their physiological, psychological, spiritual, and social needs. Care can then be delivered in the most appropriate setting of the continuum through effective communication and collaborative efforts of the Department of Nursing, Patient Care Services, ancillary departments, and medical staff. This collaborative philosophy and approach to patient care further support the values of the organization.
The Daisy Award®
Inspira invites nominations for The DAISY Award® – which recognizes outstanding licensed nurses for their skillful and compassionate care. Each quarter nurses from the Inspira staff will be chosen to receive the award!

Patients, visitors, nurses, physicians and employees may nominate a deserving and outstanding licensed nurse who exemplifies Inspira’s commitment to patient care.

Inspira Health’s Shared Governance Councils provide our Direct Care Nurses the opportunity to directly impact patient care practices. The Shared Governance Council Structure acknowledges the autonomy, professionalism, leadership responsibility, and expert clinical knowledge of direct care nurses and creates an environment of shared decision making. Each council (with the exception of the Nursing Research Council) is chaired by a Direct Care Nurse. An Administrative Liaison is assigned to each council to provide leadership support for resources and to assist in advocating for resources when necessary.
“Shared Governance validates Inspira Health’s commitment to both our patients and our Direct Care Nurses. The experience and expert knowledge of our nurses is crucial in ensuring high-quality patient care. Through our council structure nurses have the opportunity to not just share their ideas and participate in the organizational decision-making process, they are empowered to change practice and improve care.” – Anne McCartney, RN, MSN, CNM, NEA-BC (Vice President of Patient Care Services, Inspira Medical Center Vineland)
