Additional Culture Details
One initiative that we have worked hard on recently, was the requirement that all team members read The Florence Prescription book. The Florence Prescription is a manifesto for a more positive healthcare culture. The Florence Prescription and the Culture of Ownership has been an important part of our journey recently.

We’ve spent time on the Florence Book Club, as well as doing a few other fun activities to celebrate our progress and keep positive culture at the front of our team member’s minds. We’ve also established a New Employee Florence Book Club that occurs for all new Full and Part-time DCH team members, that occurs every 3-4 months.

The goal of programs such as Florence is not to do one thing one time and forget about it six months later. The goal is to instill a change in individual, departmental, and organizational belief in how to come to DCH and add value both inside and outside of these hospital walls. To maintain the established expectations and culture amongst one another at Davis County Hospital, we created another project.

Our newest recognition project is geared towards celebrating those who exude specific Characteristics of Ownership. In the book, there are 8 essential characteristics that foster a culture of ownership. It’s our goal to recognize publicly, those team members who take it upon themselves to exude these characteristics. At the beginning of this program, we gave each team member a rubber bracelet that said ‘Commitment’ – one of the 8 essential characteristics.

We have Managers/Directors that complete team rounding in departments every few months. During rounding, we currently ask each department “Who needs to be celebrated?” We then take these names and stories to then decide on the people and their actions that best represent a Characteristic of Ownership from the list below. After the individuals have been selected, we present them with a Florence Band with that specific Characteristic on it. When someone is chosen to receive an additional Florence Band, we present the band to them in person at their department meeting to celebrate their actions. We hope by the end of year, our team’s wrists are blazing with colorful Florence Bands!
