Expanding what is possible in achieving optimal health

We are on a mission of inspiring improved health, providing the right care without boundaries, and leveraging the best of every health care discipline.

Together we’re stronger, better, healthier

We believe all lives should be filled with health and well-being; that each person should have the knowledge and resources to make the best and healthiest choices for themselves and their families, with access to care and services that make acting on these choices easy. And you deserve personal attention from people who acknowledge and understand your frustrations and work to eliminate them. It means working together because that’s the way we all improve.

Catholic Health Initiatives offers expertise, convenience, resources and best-in-class care from a foundation of togetherness. To serve communities better, we’ve grown into the third-largest nonprofit health system in the nation. And we’re not done yet. We currently offer care in 18 states through 100 hospitals and clinics, including three academic health centers and major teaching hospitals as well as 29 critical-access facilities, community health-service organizations, and nursing colleges. We connect agencies, communities and facilities with a goal of bringing everyone the care they need where they need it.

There is nothing we can't do together.

Our history

Championing those in need is deep in our roots. And has been for centuries. Catholic Health Initiatives began in 1996 to transform modern health care and promote healthy communities. But we stand on the shoulders of those caring ministries that have come before us by continuing their legacy of nurturing and strength.

National leadership

Strategic plan

To continually champion the health of the people we serve, and for our own healthy future, our strategy is to excel in clinical and operational performance while advancing personal and community health beyond a traditional acute care focus.

Corporate responsibility

Catholic Health Initiatives is a values-driven organization. Our commitment to community begins with living our core values and adhering to exceptional standards of conduct. It is the personal responsibility of each and all of us to behave ethically and appropriately.
