Our Motto:

"Kindness Matters"

Kindness Matters in Health Care 

When patients visit us, they are often faced with fear and anxiety due to their illness. This is where we have a unique opportunity and privilege to provide comfort. By treating our patients with kindness and compassion, we also help them on their journey to a healthy outcome.

Horizon has built a culture where kindness and compassion are part of how we deliver the best health care available to every patient we serve. As health care providers, we connect with people through kindness. Kindness matters because it’s good for your health. We believe that kindness and compassion is often the best medicine. Many studies have concluded that when health care workers approach patients with compassion, patients often heal faster, have less pain and anxiety and even bounce back faster.
