Our Mission - Why we exist
To extend the healing ministry of Jesus in the tradition of the Sisters
of St. Joseph of Orange by continually improving the health and quality
of life of people in the communities we serve.
Our Vision - What we are striving to become
We bring people together to provide compassionate care, promote health
improvement and create healthy communities.
Our Values - What we believe in
Our values are the guiding principles for all we do, shaping our interactions
with those whom we are privileged to serve.
We respect each person as an inherently valuable member of the human community
and as a unique expression of life.
We bring people together who recognize that every interaction is a unique
opportunity to serve one another, the community, and society.
We foster personal and professional development, accountability, innovation,
teamwork, and commitment to quality.
We advocate for systems and structures that are attuned to the needs of
the vulnerable and disadvantaged and that promote a sense of community
among all persons.
