The mission of HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital is to reveal and embody Christ's healing love for all people through our high quality Franciscan health care ministry.


Reflecting our high regard for one another as inspired by our Franciscan tradition, HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital will be the preferred choice for health care and hospital services in Chippewa County and the surrounding area.


Our core values of respect, care, competence and joy will be lived by all who work here and felt by all who use our services.

HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital has four key values that guide all that we do:


This includes respect for life and for the dignity of each individual person. It is a commitment to freeing and empowering each person to grow and develop to his or her full potential.


This embodies the concern, compassion and sensitivity with which we care for patients, families, visitors and hospital staff as individuals on a one-to-one basis.


Our work is performed and our institutions are managed at the highest levels possible of skill and ability. We are committed to recruiting and developing competent people whose personal values reflect our own.


This is the manner in which our employees and all who join us in our ministry seek to perform their work — with happiness and pleasure. It is an essential ingredient in bringing a sense of hope to those who suffer.


"Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance."



St. Francis of Assisi
