Mission, Vision & Values


Mission Statement
To reveal and embody Christ's healing love for all people through our high quality Franciscan health care ministry.

Vision Statement
Rooted in our Franciscan Mission, we will be the unique, high quality Health System providing exceptional care, centered on the whole person.
Core Values

Respect
Respect means the Franciscan respect for life from conception to natural death and for the dignity of each individual person. Respect is a commitment to freeing and empowering each person to develop his or her own potential. 

Care
Care embodies the concern, compassion and sensitivity with which we care for our patients as individuals on a one-to-one basis. It depicts our way of dealing with patients, clients and colleagues. Many times it is thought of as bedside behavior, but it also belongs in administrative offices, cafeterias and boardrooms.

Competence
Competence means that our work is performed and our institutions are managed with the highest level of skill and ability. We are committed to recruiting and developing people who are competent in their work and whose values reflect our own. Our values are an integral part of our System’s strategic plan, which provides the overall framework for local activities.

Joy
Joy is the manner in which our colleagues and all who join us in our ministry seek to perform their work – the internal fulfillment of caring for others. 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."
