Columbus Regional Healthcare System is celebrating Diversity and Inclusion week from October 21 st through October 25th. The goal of Diversity and Inclusion week is to educate and create an awareness of other’s perspectives and experiences. During Diversity and Inclusion week, Columbus Regional is celebrating with What Would You Do Simulations, a Faith Talk discussing the beliefs of various faiths, Cultural Competency 101 education, and a different international food option each day in the Columbus Café.

“Columbus Regional is committed to an inclusive environment for patients, visitors, teammates, and the community,” said John Young, president and CEO of Columbus Regional Healthcare System. “We want to continue to engage ourselves and others in sharing and accepting ideas that are different from our own. Together we can do more and achieve more. At Columbus Regional, Diversity and Inclusion is a key component of our culture. Through Diversity and Inclusion, we can provide patients and teammates with a better, more thoughtful experience that provides them with a caring environment that meets their needs.”

In August, Columbus Regional’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee welcomed leadership from The Dream Center to its workgroup. On Monday, Columbus Regional released a short video discussing the importance of diversity and inclusion and how each individual plays a key role in the success of the system.
