Valor values trust, and doing the right thing builds meaningful relationships with everyone we work with.”

Question Everything

As a company grows, the way it operates should evolve to reflect the needs of the employees and its customers. Valor’s Vice President and Chief Business Officer, Sherine Khalil leads the team to optimize operations through technology, training, and scalability while ensuring adherence to compliance. “Question Everything” is a critical core value that helps lead Valor, its employees, and its partners to success in delivering excellent patient care and service.

Constantly thinking of new ways to do things helps create cohesion among Valor’s many different departments.
