Diversity, equity, and inclusion are embedded in our mission, which is to eliminate health
disparities and improve the health and well-being of the community. As a Federally
Qualified Health Center, UCFS provides care for the medically underserved populations in
eastern CT, regardless of the person’s ability to pay with a focus on low-income and
medically disenfranchised populations. As such, the care we provide often addresses
populations in which health disparities based on race or ethnicity are well documented.

A focus of our strategic plan is to accelerate our ongoing work in diversity, equity, and
inclusion to reduce disparities in healthcare access, quality, and outcomes and to
transform our organization. To that end, the UCFS Board of Directors established the
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee (DEIC) to promote this work throughout our
organization with a specific focus on the lived experiences of historically underrepresented
patients and staff in our organization.

The voices of historically marginalized and underrepresented clients and patients are too
often neglected and unheard. As we transform our organization, UCFS endeavors to
amplify those voices and experiences so that we can appropriately address inequities in
health services as well as among our healthcare profession.

When the organization now known as UCFS Healthcare was first founded in 1877, it was
created on the premise that every society has some individuals who require help or
assistance. In 1877, that group was orphaned children so our founders established an
orphanage to provide them with shelter and security.

Over the years, society has evolved and our community has changed, but one constant that
remains is that there will always be those among us who need some assistance. UCFS has
witnessed this rhythm of change multiple times in our history. As a result we are an
organization designed to change, adjust and meet the needs of our shifting community.
Our success is a direct result of the care and dedication of our employees.

We invite you to embrace the mission and vision of UCFS and bring your purpose to a team
of 400+ employees who strive to make a difference in the lives of our patients and
community each day. You will find belonging in an organization that celebrates diversity,
encourages growth and empowers you to be creative, innovative, curious, and explore the

UCFS Healthcare strives to eliminate health disparities and improve the
health and well-being of the community.

UCFS Healthcare by performance, reputation and partnership, will be Eastern CT’s best choice for patient-centered health care.

UCFS Healthcare promotes a culture that supports our team members’ well-being by
offering programs which encourage work, life , balance. Some of these programs are listed

Your Day Your Way/Guided Autonomy
We understand that balancing work and family can sometimes be challenging. This
program allows you to work with your supervisors to develop a schedule that provides for
both our patients’ needs and our your desired work schedule. This may not be feasible for
all employees based on operational needs, so ask about scheduled hours during your

Hybrid/Remote Work Options
We support remote and hybrid work options which make it easier for our employees to
balance work, life and family commitments. This may not be feasible for all employees
based on operational needs, so ask about remote or hybrid options during your interview.

It Can Wait
We believe that time off from work should be just that … time off from work. UCFS has
adopted the It Can Wait philosophy in which we do not expect you to respond to
non-urgent email after hours. There may be times when urgent emails or phones calls will
have to be answered after hours but this will not be common practice.
