    This is not the first time that Catholic Health Initiatives has disregarded the Catholic teachings. I too have experienced injustice in a lawsuit that I had filed against CHI. CHI does not care about the teachings of the church when it comes down to their bottom line. For them to act as if they were not aware of this case is repulsive. I can prove that this is not the first time that CHI disregarded the Catholic teachings in their business dealings.
