We take exceptional care of people.

Barnes-Jewish Hospital, along with our partner, Washington University School of Medicine, will be national leaders in medicine and the patient experience.


Team members across Barnes-Jewish Hospital, and throughout BJC’s hospitals and service organizations, follow a set of shared, core values that guide our behaviors and set consistent expectations for how we hold each other, and ourselves, accountable.

Each BJC value has an associated promise that tells our patients and visitors what they can expect from their place of care and tells our caregivers what they can expect from their workplace.
