Cost of Living

Many of the Adena Health System employees are homegrown talents who choose to remain in the area because of its incredibly affordable cost of living.

Cost of living indices are based on a U.S. average of 100, and an amount below 100 means Ross County is cheaper than the United States average. In addition, Ross County is 4% less expensive than the Ohio average and Chillicothe is the 187th most expensive city in Ohio.

The cost of living indices for other surrounding counties includes:

Jackson County: 79.7
Pike County: 78.4
Fairfield County: 92.6
Highland County: 77.3

In addition to an affordable cost of living, you will enjoy one of the lowest tax burdens in the country by locating to South Central Ohio while simultaneously benefiting from some of the most competitive rates for utilities (electric, gas and fiber services).

Diversity and Inclusion

Adena Health System is committed to fair and inclusive interactions with all of our patients, families, physicians, employees, business partners and communities we serve. We will enhance our cultural competency by educating, recognizing and celebrating the value of diverse cultures, beliefs and identities.

Workplace diversity encompasses more than the ethnic differences between colleagues in an organization. It combines race, gender, ethnicity, age, personality, tenure, organizational function, education, experience and background to enrich the experience of all members of an organization.

At Adena, we recognize that diversity throughout our system is essential to achieving our primary goal: providing the highest quality of care for our patients. Maintaining a diverse work force ensures that our employees are able to relate effectively to our patients and their family members. It also directly affects our ability to attract and retain the most talented health care professionals. We believe that diversity, inclusion and economic empowerment are integral to the success of our organization.

Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion extends to our employees, our patients, our business partners and to the communities we serve. 

Our goal is to maintain an inclusive workforce to ensure that our employees and physicians are able to communicate effectively with and relate to our patients and their families. We are also committed to creating a welcoming environment that maximizes our patients’ healing potential.
