PCH shall be committed to a continued review and analysis of the changing needs of the community it serves and shall respond to those needs with services that are readily available in a form that enhances their efficient use by physicians and patients. In addition, PCH shall maintain an ability to adapt to changes and influence forces in its environment effectively and expeditiously.
