Health Equity Toolkit

MultiCare’s Commitment to Health Equity

At MultiCare, our mission of partnering for healing and a healthy future can’t be achieved without also addressing health equity. In order to live out our mission, we recognize the growing need for all of our staff and partners to have the resources they need to advance health equity, and eliminate health disparities. This toolkit is a living document, and is meant to be a repository of resources to aid in our shared learning, growing and contributing to the betterment of us all.
