Pride Month Spotlight: Dr. Chad Keller

Adena Health System recognizes LGBTQ+ caregivers in all levels of health care that serve and care for the well-being of others every day.

Adena is committed to creating an inclusive environment that respects the human dignity and diversity of each member of the Adena family.

Inclusion is the cornerstone for engagement. Can someone be fully engaged if they are not included? A sense of inclusion allows caregivers to feel like their voice matters, are accepted, and that they belong. Brene Brown once said “Only when diverse perspectives are included, respected, and valued can we start to get a full picture of the world; who we serve, what they need, and how to successfully meet people where they are.” Inclusion also has an influence on psychological safety- being able to show and employ one’s self without fear of negative consequences of self-image, status or career.

Everyone deserves and will be treated fairly and equitably at Adena. We recognize and celebrate the value of diverse cultures, beliefs, identities and race.

Please help us recognize Chad Keller, DO an Otolaryngologist with Adena Ear, Nose and Throat. Dr. Keller has been serving patients throughout south central and southern Ohio with Adena for over three years. He is highly respected and valued by his colleagues and patients. Dr. Keller appreciates his acceptance and the support he finds within the Health System with no fear of repercussions.

Dr. Keller finds his work-life balance outside of the clinic by enjoying fast boats, painting landscapes and getting up at 3:55 am to spend time working out. Being in the spotlight for Pride Month is another step for him as he makes great strides in showing up as his authentic self. 

Thank you Dr. Keller for all you do each day as an Adena caregiver and for the LGBTQ+ communities in which we serve.

As we continue to become a more diverse organization, it’s important to continue our journey with diversity, equity, and inclusion.
