Employee Core Values Video
Puget Sound Orthopaedics’ Core Values were developed from a survey sent to all staff about what was the most important to them in their work environment. The core value words come directly from our staff and represent those values that were most repeated. As the leadership team worked to cull through the survey results, Leslie Faelnar pointed out that the first letter of the most repeated words spelled out HEART. And the HEART of PSO was born. The letters of HEART stand for Honesty, Empathy, Accountability, Respect, and Teamwork.

Since its’ establishment in 2004, the Puget Sound Surgery Center has been fortunate in recruiting highly motivated and skilled individuals who are dedicated to patient care.
