Nebraska Ministries Hold Missioning Ceremony

On August 24 and 25, four CHI ministries in Nebraska held ceremonies to formally commission and bless CHI Nebraska, the new market-based organization that includes Good Samaritan Health Systems, Kearney; Saint Elizabeth Health Systems, Lincoln; Saint Francis Medical Center, Grand Island, and St. Mary’s Community Hospital, Nebraska City. During the ceremonies, the CEOs of the four ministries placed the final pieces in a tile mosaic that includes symbols of the ministries and the four core values of CHI. Employees across the ministries previously had the opportunity to help create the mosaics. Identical copies of the mosaic will be on permanent display at each ministry location.
