Diversity Champions Program
Among Community's numerous innovative initiatives for supporting diversity is the network's Diversity Champions program, created to identify, train and encourage additional diversity representatives at each of the numerous Community locations.
The program kicked off in 2007, with approximately 75 employees, managers and directors from across the network identified as "champions" for diversity.
Together, the champions focus on awareness, interaction and acceptance of all—and ensure that all employees are aware of how much Community values the differences that its people bring to the network as well as the influence that they have on the organization and employee relationships with patients and families.
Community Health Network has medical interpreters - available at no cost 24/7 - to assist patients, their family members, and other legally authorized persons with verbal and written interpretation in clinical settings and more.
