A Message from the Flagler Hospital Chief Learning Officer
Excellence can be defined as "the best obtainable, first class, premium,
highest, superior and exceptional." In our lives, being committed
to excellence can make all the difference in the world. When we make every
effort to do our best, we can reach for the stars and fulfill our potential.
Real happiness comes from knowing that we refuse to stop at good enough
and make excellence our goal. The Flagler Life Institute is committed
to pursuing excellence in creating a learning culture at Flagler Hospital
for our employees, patients and community members.

What is the Life Institute?
Increasing Knowledge, Achieving Excellence
Increasing knowledge through education is the cornerstone in achieving
excellence. The Life Institute, an educational entity, is an integral
component in support of Flagler Hospital's Vision and Mission statements
which are respectively; "To be recognized as a leading health care
provider in Northeast Florida," and "To provide the best patient
experience with the best staff." Therefore, accomplishment of the
hospital's Vision and Mission requires a proactive, rigorous, and
innovative professional development program for all Flagler Hospital Staff.
By providing quality programs and services for staff, the Life Institute
will be true to its purpose, "To cultivate a learning organization
through investment in the education and development of all employees affiliated
with Flagler Hospital."
At its core, the Life Institute is about creating a hospital culture in
which every employee feels valued and in turn values the opportunity to
grow through education and self-development. This is best accomplished
through employee involvement in the design of the Life Institute and its
components, including identification of content areas and setting priorities
for learning. The Life Institute is different than a traditional hospital
staff development department in that the Life Institute offers a multidimensional
approach to helping employees achieve their maximum potential. This approach
is focused on employees' gaining job-related knowledge and skills
and developing the life management skills that facilitate healthier, more
balanced lifestyles. The underlying assumption is that better people make
better employees. The ultimate goal is to create a hospital culture in
which every employee feels the ownership needed for the successful pursuit
of excellence in the performance of their jobs.
