Creating a Culture of Community and Collaboration
Unlike traditional health care professional liability insurance companies, CHI’s successes and losses are “owned” by those it insures. This structure means unprecedented commitment from the leaders of each owner organization. To foster that commitment, CHI holds an owners retreat every two years providing relevant ERM education and fostering an environment where industry leaders can create a network of shared knowledge and experiences.
The owners retreats give CEOs and other senior leaders an opportunity to partner with their peers and work side by side on issues that are most vital to them. They share their successes and challenges and form friendships that stretch beyond CHI.
Partnership between hospitals to reduce the frequency and cost of claims is the basis of CHI’s formation 30 years ago, and this partnership is why it continues to thrive today. Creation of this supportive, collaborative culture is perhaps one of CHI’s greatest accomplishments.
“We always make sure our organization is well represented at the CHI owners’ retreats. CHI is comprised of a community of like-minded hospitals and the opportunity to meet and share ideas is tremendously rewarding.”
Dr. Steven Packer, MD, President/CEO, Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula
