Mission & Values

Being part of a Catholic Health Care System means that ours is a ministry with roots in the teachings of the Church and the Gospel message of Jesus. At Caritas Christi we are not just another provider of health care. We are a continuation of the healing ministry of Jesus. Our Mission and Values are the forces that drive us toward achieving Exceptional Care.

Our Mission is our reason for being:

Caritas Christi is a regional health system of compassionate caregivers that embodies the spirit of Christ’s healing ministry, and demonstrates excellence in service, research and education.

Our Vision describes a set of ideals and picture for the future:

To become an exceptional, integrated regional health system.

Our Values are the principles or beliefs that guide our work:

  • Compassion: Providing care with empathy and integrity through actions rooted in Catholic health care.
  • Accountability: Accepting responsibility for continuous performance improvement and just stewardship of resources.
  • Respect: Recognizing the dignity and contribution of each person through our mission of service.
  • Excellence: Pursuing a single standard of quality patient care, education and research that is measurable and exceptional

As women and men working in healthcare, everyday we come to work we have an opportunity to effect change. It is our way of offering service that makes us different. Our identity as a Catholic health care system is reflected in who we are and how we act.  It is reflected in who we serve and how we care for those we serve. It is reflected in how we treat one another, and it is reflected in how we contribute to the common good. Our identity and our integrity are a result of using our time, our talents, our compassion and making concrete efforts to work for the dignity of every person.
