Sponsorship: St. Joseph Health Ministry

Sponsorship is the responsibility and moral accountability for, support of, influence on and public identification with a project, program, or entity. When the St. Joseph Health was created in 1982, the elected leadership of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange exercised the responsibilities of sponsorship.

In May 2008, the sponsorship was transferred to St. Joseph Health Ministry, a church corporation consisting of six individuals, commissioned by the founding sponsors.
