Community Hospice, Inc. (CHI) takes pride in the Culture of Safety it has developed over the past several years.

From day one of employment, CHI demonstrates to staff their commitment to this culture through extensive training, education and supportive programs all focused on health and safety. But the message doesn’t stop there; safety is woven into the fabric of their operations. Whether it be a vibrant and effective safety committee with members from every level of the organization, quarterly safety inspections of each facility, monthly safety presentations at all-employee meetings, or putting all employees through an extensive defensive driver training program, CHI continually reminds employees of the importance safety and how it fits into their daily tasks.
