Affordable Cost of Living

Many of Adena’s employees are homegrown talents who choose to remain in the area because of its incredibly affordable cost of living. Cost of living indices based on a U.S. average show living in Highland, Jackson, Pike and Ross Counties are cheaper than the United States average. In addition to an affordable cost of living, our caregivers enjoy one of the lowest tax burdens in the country while simultaneously benefiting from some of the most competitive rates for utilities (electric, gas and fiber services).

Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion extends to our employees, our patients, our business partners and to the communities we serve. Adena enhances our cultural competency by educating, recognizing and celebrating the value of diverse cultures, beliefs and identities.
