Mission & Vision

Exceptional Healthcare. Every Person. Every Time.

Catawba Valley Medical Center is committed to serving its community with the best resources available – both through technology and through people. Each member of our staff attempts to be exceptional in their delivery of care by not simply doing what is expected, but going beyond expectations to provide the best experience to our patients and their families. Exceptional is achieved by always lifting up the needs of our community, our patients and our co-workers, and always working to improve how we deliver care. Every person, indiscriminately, will receive our best efforts and highest level of compassion. And we will deliver this every time, throughout our hospital, from support staff to professionals and administration. The community that built our hospital deserves nothing less.
