Differences aren’t barriers; the failure to understand them is.
Here at CHOP, we're committed to delivering a quality, culturally competent ideal experience to every patient and family. We're preparing our staff to address the needs of patients, families and communities. Leveraging partnerships with our Employee Resource Groups, Heritage Celebration Committee, and Patient Services, we deliver ongoing cultural competency forums to empower our staff.
