Planetree Philosophy of Health Care
North Valley Hospital and its outreach clinics practice the Planetree health care philosophy of patient-centered care in a healing environment. Planetree is an independent organization that assists medical facilities with best practices to demystify, humanize and personalize the patient experience.
Using the Planetree philosophy, we focus on healing not only the body, but the mind and spirit too. To us, our patients are people with feelings and desires outside of their immediate medical needs. It’s not just what we believe, but integral to what we practice 24/7. Patients and their families recognize and appreciate the level of personal care received at North Valley Hospital. It also inspires our caring staff, while attracting and retaining the best health care professionals from around the country.
