Treating the mind, body and spirit is at the heart of our care model. But to do this, there's something different that you'll notice about our 83,000 employees around the country - uncommon compassion. Compassion is the heartbeat of our care. It is the steady rhythm that connects us to one another and to your whole health.

As a mission-driven organization grounded in faith, we focus on emulating the love demonstrated by Christ. Our dedication to providing extraordinary, compassionate care continues beyond the patient floors, operating rooms and consultations. To us, wellness means healing all aspects of the body, mind and spirit. It's the very foundation upon which our system was built.

At our care locations, compassion means that we are sensitive to the needs of the individuals and families we serve, and always seek to meet these needs with kindness and empathy. When you're treated with dignity and sensitivity from world-class experts, healing can take new shape to that of wholeness. We want people to feel loved and treated as though they are family, and we accomplish this through these service standards:

Our Christian Mission.

We serve our community under Christ's ministry of hope and healing. To this end, we strive to incorporate the Christian values of compassion and love at every level of service.

Care With Love.

When Christ was asked what the greatest commandments were, He focused on Love, saying, "Love God with all your heart, mind, and strength, and love your neighbor in the same way you love yourself."

Spiritual Care.

As a faith-based health care provider, we understand the importance of whole-person health, which includes not only physical, but also mental and spiritual healing. Our spiritual care team is available at any time for prayer, meditation, or consultation, regardless of your faith tradition. Our multi-denominational chapels are available to all who need them.

Positive (Healing) Environments.

A hospital stay can be a stressful time for our patients and their loved ones. We're committed to providing an environment that invites a sense of peace and calm to promote healing. That's why we've created a family-friendly atmosphere, designed around allowing families to visit with loved ones.

Quality and Service Excellence.

In all we do, we endeavor to meet or exceed both the service standards of the healthcare industry as well as the expectations of the patients we serve. We measure our success by continually surveying our patients' satisfaction.

You come first. In everything we do, we promise compassionate, state-of-the-art care in a spiritual, healing environment to uniquely promote whole person health - in, body, mind and spirit.
