Mary's Center is consistently recognized as a premiere institution and example of excellence for health centers both locally and nationally. Working here is working in the community. There is no screen between us and the reality of living in our city for the most disadvantaged and vulnerable populations in the area. Mary's Center values are patient centered, accountable, respectful, and culturally competent. Our work culture is empathetic and encouraging to the individual yet expects a high level of professionalism and accountability. As with many safety net health centers what lacks in salary is gained in the impact and value of our work.
