Across Canada we are celebrating National Catholic Health Care Week.  At Catholic Health International our many facilities are finding opportunities to celebrate our mission.  This week we will be celebrating the four pillars of Catholic Health Care;

Our Calling to Serve

Our Culture of Encounter

Our Commitment to Social Justice

Our Leadership Role

Each day we will be sharing stories from these four pillars.  We encourage you to share with others your stories of mission driven care during the week.

Our Calling to Serve

Rooted in the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, Catholic health care begins with a spiritual purpose. We have a deep and profound calling to serve and provide care to all people, especially those most vulnerable. We take a holistic and compassionate approach, recognizing the whole person in community, the fundamental link between spirituality and healing, and the diverse cultural and spiritual needs of those we serve.

Our Culture of Encounter

Catholic health care fosters a culture of encounter, where those involved in the healing journey are people first, and health care providers participate with those they serve with compassion and humanity. This culture creates awareness, both of self and others, and opportunities to build profound relationships and lasting impact on people’s lives.

Our Commitment to Social Justice

Catholic health care is committed to collaborating with our partners to create the conditions for a just and caring society, where people’s voices are heard, and every person has the ability to thrive in community. With a focus on dignity, respect, and compassion, we advocate for service to individuals at times of their greatest vulnerability, and to create culturally safe environments of health and healing.

Our Leadership Role

Catholic health care makes the Canadian health care system stronger, more responsive, and more sustainable.

Guided by our values and inspired by our Founding Sisters, we are pioneers, leaders, and innovators. We are resourceful and effective partners within the health system, responding to the communities we serve with compassion, ethical integrity and the highest quality care and services.
