The Catholic Health Association and the Catholic health care ministry are committed to diversity — both in the workforce and in meeting the needs of diverse patients.
CHA is a co-founder of the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity and continues to work closely on its initiatives. CHA has a Special Committee on Diversity that addresses the issue and the CHA Board of Trustees approved several recommendations from the committee in 2005. Those recommendations reaffirm our commitment to expanding representation of historically underrepresented groups in health care, on the board, and on board and administrative committees, and on staff.
CHA additionally addresses the issue through advocacy and education.
