We provide care in 22 cities; and employ approximately 6,300 employees. In the 2016 fiscal year, Via Christi provided $77.8 million in community benefit by providing free medical care to persons living in poverty, educating health professionals, and supporting local community health efforts.
Via Christi is also nationally recognized. Our Pittsburg hospital was named one of the Top 100 Rural & Community Hospitals in the US for two consecutive years. In Wichita, we were voted best in town by the Wichita Eagle’s 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards and named in Becker’s Healthcare 2017 list of 100 hospitals and health systems with great oncology, neurosurgery and spine programs.
Our benefits and culture are two aspects of Via Christi that we feel set us apart. We offer tuition reimbursement that is available to both part-time and full-time associates in any position. In Wichita, we also offer child care for day shift workers through our Chi...ld Development Center.
We also offer a unique program, Breaking Bread, that allows employees to join senior leaders for a meal and conversation about what is working well and ways we can work together to improve. It’s one small way we give employees a voice and work together to offer the best care possible for our patients.
Our healthcare ministry is also on the forefront of combating human trafficking. We train our healthcare providers on victim detection, and have also rolled out training to other providers in local communities. This is one way that we advocate for justice for those that we serve.
