Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center: No. 4 in The DiversityInc Top 10 Hospitals and Health Systems

WHY IT'S ON THE LIST

 


Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center has been internationally recognized for improving child health and transforming delivery of care through research, education and innovation. The hospital serves patients from 47 countries and all 50 states. President and CEO Michael Fisher personally signs off on compensation tied to diversity and meets regularly with the hospital's nine resource groups.

The resource groups are used for talent development and also serve as ambassadors to the Greater Cincinnati community. Some of the more unique groups include Dad Connect, which celebrates the relationships between children and their fathers or father figures, and Embrace, a group for adoptive and foster families.

The hospital's physicians are leaders in addressing health disparities. Pediatricians Andrew Beck, MD and Robert Kahn, MD recently led a study, published in the journal Pediatrics, that showed Black children are twice as likely as white children to be readmitted to the hospital for asthma—a disparity due in large part to a greater burden of financial and social hardships. The physicians are studying ways in which community-based prevention may help close this gap.

DIVERSITY LEADERSHIP

Michael Fisher

President and CEO

"Our foundational core value is 'respect everyone.' Our employees come from throughout the United States and nearly 100 countries. Ensuring that every one of them feels respected enables us to attract, retain and develop the world's top-notch talent that want to be at the leading edge of pediatrics. At Cincinnati Children's, diversity means embracing both the similarities and differences of our colleagues to accelerate our ability to change the outcome for kids."

James E. Page

Assistant Vice President, Diversity, Inclusion & Cultural Competence

"Cultural competency is a strategic tool that helps Cincinnati Children's successfully provide safe and extraordinary healthcare experiences. Actively engaging the diversity of our patients, families and employees enables us to navigate the most complex cultural and medical situations. Linking cultural competency, diversity and patient experience has propelled Cincinnati Children's to be one of the leading pediatric medical centers in the world."

In the aftermath of the racist incident in a Philadelphia Starbucks store, the company is going to close 8,000 Starbucks stores on May 29th for hastily prepared diversity training.

It's a mistake.
