CHI – Why Work With Us?


Catholic Health Initiatives, a nonprofit, faith-based health system formed in 1996 through the consolidation of four Catholic health systems, expresses its mission each day by creating and nurturing healthy communities in the hundreds of sites across the nation where it provides care. One of the nation’s largest health systems, Englewood, Colo.-based CHI operates in 18 states and comprises 105 hospitals, including four academic health centers and major teaching hospitals and 30 critical-access facilities; community health-services organizations; accredited nursing colleges; home-health agencies; and other facilities that span the inpatient and outpatient continuum of care. 



The Mission of Catholic Health Initiatives is to nurture the healing ministry of the Church, supported by education and research. Fidelity to the Gospel urges us to emphasize human dignity and social justice as we create healthier communities.

Our Vision is to live up to our name as one CHI:

Nearly 700 employees, physicians, participating congregation members and board members from throughout Catholic Health Initiatives participated in the process of naming our core values.  The core values define CHI and serve as our guiding principles.  They are the roots, or anchors, from which all of our activities, decisions and behaviors follow.

Reverence: Profound respect and awe for all of creation, the foundation that shapes spirituality, our relationships with others and our journey to God.

Integrity: Moral wholeness, soundness, fidelity, trust, truthfulness in all we do.

Compassion: Solidarity with one another, capacity to enter into another’s joy and sorrow.

Excellence: Preeminent performance, becoming the benchmark, putting forth our personal and professional best.

What Makes CHI Different

What makes CHI different from other employers – even from other health care employers? Here’s what some of our employees say:

I have been in many hospitals, but there is just something different about this one.

I am grateful for the Morning Prayer because it helps ground me before starting my day.

Through the years, I have heard dozens of unsolicited comments about our office culture.  Some call it a ‘mood,’ some an ‘atmosphere,’ and others a ‘feeling.’  But their meaning is always the same: they look forward to coming to our office because they feel a wonderful calm as soon as they walk in.

I found myself coming alive again when I heard the mission statement of Catholic Health Initiatives.  A true sense of mission was coming back into my work.

While the “atmosphere” or “feeling” of CHI can be hard to define, we know there are some specific things that make CHI different:

  • Our mission to create healthy communities.
  • The reflections that begin all of our management and leadership meetings.
  • Our core values, which are the basis of all of our decisions and actions.
  • Our celebrations including annual feast days:
    • World Day of Healing, Feb. 11
    • Birthday of CHI, May 1
    • Labor Day
  • Our national office and our facilities regularly give back to their communities through activities such as collecting winter coats, school supplies or Christmas gifts for children in need; sprucing up the homes of people who cannot perform their own home maintenance; or helping to construct a Habit for Humanity house. These activities vary, but are ongoing.
  • Annual “Staff Renewal” days in CHI’s national offices give employees time to refresh their perspectives or work together on a community project.
  • Our annual collections of Sacred Stories, written by employees and other members of the CHI family about their experiences with lived spirituality in our workplace.
  • Opportunities for career growth that include continuing education and sabbaticals.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at CHI in March 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process was very basic. They asked basic questions about how you would handle certain situations. What do you know about St. Francis Hospital? What do you know about this position? How did you hear about this position? Tell me about a time you took initiative in the workplace.
