The Piedmont Promise

At Piedmont Healthcare, We've Made a Promise

A promise that we will make your safety our priority. 

A promise to recognize that this sterile environment can still be warm. That "hospital" and "hospitality" are not similar just by coincidence. And that world-class healthcare is even better when it's down to earth. 

The promise means that, even though we love working here, we understand you may not want to be here. It means knowing patients are more informed than ever, but realizing that "endoscope", "laparoscope" and "colonoscope" all sound equally intimidating.

Our promise is to be respectful of your time.

We promise to alleviate your fear. By hearing your concerns. To do everything in our power to make you well. And keep you well. So we'll remind you to: Get your colonoscopies, get your mammograms, exercise at least three times a week, and eat your vegetables.

We promise to empower you to take charge of your healthcare. By providing you with some of the world's best doctors, nurses and specialists. The latest in medical technology. Information you can understand. And lots of genuine, heartfelt concern.

That's our promise.
