Our mission

The Mission of Catholic Health Initiatives is to nurture the healing ministry of the Church, supported by education and research. Fidelity to the Gospel urges us to emphasize human dignity and social justice as we create healthier communities.

Our values

We are guided by our Mission and Core Values of Reverence, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence.

Reverence

A profound spirit of awe and respect for all of creation, shaping our relationship to self, one another and to God, and acknowledging that we hold in trust all that has been given to us.

Integrity

Moral wholeness, soundness, uprightness, honesty and sincerity as the basis of trustworthiness.

Feeling with others, being one with others in their sorrows and joy, rooted in the sense of solidarity as members of the human community. It is the heartfelt concern for the needs of others that compels us to respond. Compassion makes a difference you can feel.
