KVC Health Systems’ Vision, Mission and Values

KVC Health Systems uses many guiding values and belief statements which provide the foundation for all we do. State leaders, parents and communities put their faith in us to advocate for children and families. Today, we provide a vast continuum of care with a primary focus on home and community-based behavioral healthcare and child welfare services, directly touching the lives of more than 75,000 people each year.

KVC’s Vision

To ensure every person is safe and connected to a strong family and a healthy community.

KVC’s Mission

To enrich and enhance the lives of children and families by providing medical and behavioral healthcare, social services and education.

KVC’s Values

Over the past nearly 200 years, we have operated under a strong set of values that guide all the work we do. We’ve become who we are by asking “What would you want for your child?” and remembering “Children grow best in families” and “Excellence is not an act; it’s a habit.” We recently refreshed the language of our values, making them shorter and broader. Our values are:

  • The heart of our work is helping people.
  • Our character is built on authenticity and compassion.
  • Family connection drives our culture.
  • Collaboration fuels our improvement.
  • Urgency and innovation mark our approach.
  • Diverse perspectives are key to our progress.
  • And always asking, “What would you want for your child?”

We want to hear from you! Which of these values resonates most with you and why? Let us know with a comment on Facebook.
