Unless you’re there for the joyous occasion of giving birth, let’s face it – nobody really wants to be in a hospital. It means something’s wrong and needs fixing. But what’s right about CHOMP is that everyone from the greeters at the door to the techs in the X-ray rooms to the doctors charting the course of treatment all keep the mission in mind – to get patients well, as well as they can, and as quickly as they can. But they are taken care of themselves, with world-class facilities, zen gardens, generous benefits, special field trips to things like the Golden State Warriors games, and – yes – great healthcare coverage.
