Our Promise for a New Kind of Caring

Our name is a symbol of wholeness, focusing on healing you in body, mind and spirit.

We live this mission in everything we do — from how we deliver medicine to the name we proudly bear across our system. Advent signals the arrival of something or someone of great significance. To us, that means the beginning of health and expresses a strong and clear connection to the healing God has promised. We hold this promise dearly and work relentlessly to pursue the healing ministry of Christ today and every day.
