THA continues to take a strong, unwavering stance against any form of racism, bias, and all forms of discrimination.
“THA and Texas hospitals are committed to advancing the agenda of diversity, equity and inclusiveness. Diversity and inclusivity are demonstrations of a commitment to social justice and to the betterment of everyone in our communities. We value differences, welcome all different individuals into our community of service, and work tirelessly to provide each individual the opportunity to attain their full potential.”Sally Deitch
