Our Culture

We work together to develop even better complex care services through innovation, skills and compassion. And where else can you chart patients outside at the playground?

Another core part of our culture is ongoing education. Challenging patients promote continuous learning. At the same time, they inspire hope as patients triumph and go home.

Ranken Jordan has expanded our clinical educator roles to support clinical staff who need specialized and individualized education. Even clinicians with year of experience benefit from additional training when caring for children with medical complexities. We’re always learning and growing, right along with the children we care for.

We’re Fishy

With a mesmerizing tropical fish tank near our lobby to colorfully illustrate our philosophy, Ranken Jordan’s culture is based on FISH. This program promotes more positive interactions with our patients and families, partners, and each other. Trust, dignity and respect feed this FISH philosophy.

FISH is based on four simple and powerful principles:

Make their day.

Be mindful of others—see a need, fill a need.

Choose your attitude.

Our positive choices have a domino effect.

Be there.

Truly listen and be present for each other and our patients and families.

Play.

Interact with others in a silly yet serious way.

The FISH principles are balanced and integrated to benefit everyone we encounter each day. FISH helps us relate and connect with each other, create change, grow and challenge each other. Being FISHY is a vital part of our culture. We’re hooked!

We want to catch the best team members so they become keepers, too. Getting in touch with your inner FISH is a core part of new employee orientation.
