Diversity at OhioHealth

Our differences, our rich culture and our unfettered values – these are the tenets which make OhioHealth great. We believe it’s the only way to truly be a nationally-respected healthcare system.

We at OhioHealth take the descriptor “A Great Place to Work” very seriously. That’s why we invest in the right components to make that a reality every day. It means having robust Diversity Councils and Business Resource Groups designed to foster an environment where differences are respected and drive innovation.

We pride ourselves on being a preferred employer because of the values we live by. Our reputation comes with great responsibility – to ensure that the talent we hire brings diverse excellence to enrich our associate culture across all sectors. Furthermore, we foster the dignity and worth of every individual to make certain those ideals thrive system-wide.

Diversity as Part of Our Values

We Act Upon Our Beliefs

We unwaveringly work to promote and sustain a culture of care and excellence. In our view, that is accomplished when all associates are part of the conversation, and happens through a culture of communication and transparency.

Diversity and inclusion in the workplace are fundamental to making our high impact culture a tangible reality. By staying true to our Values Blueprint, a codified understanding among all associates, we can successfully maintain a workplace where everyone’s uniqueness and fresh perspectives contribute to the excellence in care we deliver.

What Diversity Is to Us

Diversity and Inclusion Is an Ongoing Journey 

We are creating a common language about diversity and inclusion. It begins with being curious, listening to and learning from one another, showing empathy and recognizing that we each have our own story.

This work is critical to nurturing the culture we aspire to. We need to be certain that we are a great place to work for all, regardless of race, color, ethnicity, religion, culture, language, national origin, age, disability, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. No matter what paths bring us to OhioHealth, we should all experience OhioHealth in the same way. And the people we serve should see our culture reflected in their care.
