Disability Awareness Resource Team (DART)
In 2015, TriHealth formed the Disability Awareness Resource Team (DART), which supports team members and their families by increasing awareness of and support for individuals with disabilities.

Project SEARCH Interns Brighten TriHealth
Project SEARCH, which began at Cincinnati Children’s, fully immerses participants in the workplace and provides a seamless combination of classroom instruction, career exploration and hands-on training through work site rotation
Our own Volunteer Services was joined by Ben Naylor who served as a Customer Service Representative and will continue to volunteer with our program this summer.
“The highlight of my first day (at TriHealth), I would say, was when Mr. Jamie Easterling came down to take a picture with me,” Naylor said.
Jamie Easterling, Executive Director of Good Samaritan Hospital, shared, “I believe the enthusiasm for the opportunity as well as the great job that the students are doing shows a commitment from Good Samaritan that great things can happen when you value differences and create an environment that encourages diversity and personal growth. These students are doing a great job and bring a smile to many of our team members, visitors and patients each day. Good Samaritan is very lucky to have this opportunity.”
We look forward to our continued partnership with Project SEARCH.
