Catholic Health Mission

Mission Statement
We, at Catholic Health, humbly join together to bring Christ’s healing mission and the mission of mercy of the Catholic Church expressed in Catholic health care to our communities.

I-CARE Values

Integrity: We are who we say we are and act in accordance with the splendor of
truth of our Catholic moral teaching and our Catholic values.

Compassion: We have compassion for our patients, see the suffering Christ in them,
strive to alleviate suffering and serve the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of
our patients.

Accountability: We take responsibility for our actions and their consequences.

Respect: We honor the sanctity of life at every stage of life and the dignity of every
person, and incorporate all the principles of Catholic social teaching in our
relationships and advocacy.

Excellence: We seek the glory of God in the compassionate service of our patients,
and we strive to do the best that can be done, whatever our role.

Also, please see the Ethical and Religious Directives issued by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
