Diversity at CHS
Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) takes great pride in its diverse work force. We believe diversity encompasses all the ways in which human beings are both similar and different, and as such, CHS promotes an environment where these differences are valued and integrated into our organization's operations.
Debra Plousha Moore, Chief Human Resources Officer
Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) is the proud recipient of the 2010 Belk Innovation in Diversity Award from the Charlotte Chamber.
The award is presented to an organization that demonstrates a commitment to the promotion and acceptance of diversity and inclusion, and generates measurable results in the programs it employs to establish workplace diversity and inclusion.
Among the many ways CHS promotes diversity and inclusion are:
- An annual regional diversity and inclusion symposium held since 2002.
- A Physician Diversity Advisory Committee in place since 1998.
- Creation of a diversity and inclusion hotline to answer questions and address concerns from employees.
- A supplier diversity program that directed nearly $113 million to minority and woman owned businesses in 2009.
- Employment of 70 professional interpreters to establish accurate, safe communications between patients and healthcare providers.
- Educating employees on CHS's culture of diversity and inclusion at new employee orientation and leadership training programs.
"It is a great honor for us to receive this award because it recognizes our organized, structured approach to raising diversity and inclusion awareness among CHS employees," said Debra Plousha Moore, CHS Senior Vice President, Human Resources. "Our employees have responded wonderfully to these programs. They recognize our strength as a healthcare system lies in the unique talents and perspectives that people of different backgrounds can bring to improve the care we provide our patients".
