The mission of TCCN is to support, educate, and represent non-profit organizations that provide charitable healthcare services to low-income, uninsured, and underserved Tennesseans.
TCCN envisions a strong, compassionate healthcare safety net for all Tennesseans in need.
TCCN’s work, interactions, and partnerships will reflect and be guided by our universally shared values:
TCCN will set high standards in all it does, developing and implementing exemplary policies and practices wherever possible. We will deliver outstanding service to our member organizations and those with whom we partner.
TCCN values different perspectives and will strive to understand others’ points-of-view, cultures, experiences and beliefs.
TCCN board members, staff and volunteers will set aside personal interests, biases and agendas in their work for the organization and will strictly adhere to a rigorous conflict of interest policy.
TCCN will be alert to changing conditions in healthcare and health policy as well as to the needs and interests of its member organizations, and will adapt its goals and objectives as needed to accomplish its mission.
TEAMWORK AND COLLABORATION
TCCN will work collaboratively both internally and externally in pursuit of our mission.
TCCN will act with compassion toward staff, members, and partners and foster a culture of compassionate care for patients at member clinics.
TCCN will be committed to the careful stewardship of all human, natural, and financial resources. This means we will use carefully the time and talents of those working with us and for us, we will be environmentally responsible, and we will prudently manage and utilize the funds invested in us.
TCCN pledges that it will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, citizenship status, age, disability, sexual orientation or veteran status.
