Our Values

PCRAFT values are the guiding core principles of St. Luke’s health care team, the qualities we strive for with every encounter. Pride, caring, respect, accountability, flexibility and teamwork are the qualities our team will deliver every time.

PCRAFT values should always be on display – during a routine checkup at the doctor’s office, in a St. Luke’s Care Now facility, in the Emergency Department, during a same-day procedure or a complex surgery. As a patient or prospective employee, you can count on every member of the St. Luke’s team to display PCRAFT values in every situation.
