We Value Diversity

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at KCH

At Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care, we don’t just accept differences—we celebrate them, we support them, and we thrive on them for the benefit of our employees, our patients, and our community.

Our diversity defines us. It binds us. It makes us great.

Focus of our efforts

In 2019 Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care began some important work to formalize and further our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) efforts as an agency. We’re proud to share that as of 2023, this work is embedded across all five pillars of our Strategic Plan.

Led by members of our DEI Employee Resource Group, actionable work is organized around seven focus areas:

  • Patient Care
  • Recruitment Practices
  • Staff Management & Education
  • Internal & External Communications
  • Gender Inclusion
  • Business Practices
  • Board Leadership
