Seeking to improve the health of individuals and communities, we provide high quality service that is holistic, compassionate and respectful of human dignity. Central to this endeavor is the service of persons who are poor and disadvantaged. Our Values
- Reverence for the dignity of each person
- Justice for all, especially those who are poor and disadvantaged
Philanthropy has always been important to the organizations that comprise CHS. The efforts of the foundations help us to fulfill our mission to provide the best care experience possible to everyone who comes to us for care.
Maintaining top-quality medical care and state-of-the-art medical technology requires outside help. This crucial financial assistance comes from the CHS charitable foundations: the Kenmore Mercy Hospital Foundation, Mercy Hospital Foundation, Sisters Hospital Foundation, St. Francis Foundation, Inc., St. Joseph Hosptial Foundation, and the newly formed Continuing Care Foundation.
Each year the foundations of the Catholic Health System hold special events open to the community. Your contribution in a fun atmosphere helps each foundation raise funds for equipment, programs and the improvment of patient care at their respective facilities.
