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.

We have four strategic objectives that are shared across our organization.

Vibrant ministry

We will nurture and grow into a vibrant ministry by strengthening our core values while responding to the needs of our communities.

Energized community

We will build and energize our communities by tapping into the passion and expertise of our people and partnering with others who share our commitment to create healthier communities.

Exceptional care

We will give exceptional care by putting the power to do what’s right into the hands of our people.

Distinctive value

We will create distinctive value by caring for the whole person and whole community in new and inventive ways.

We regularly track our progress in accomplishing these objectives.


  • New Consumers: We will increase the number of new consumers touched by our health ministry.
  • Community Partnerships: We will enhance and create partnerships to improve health in the communities we serve.
  • Access: We will expand the ways and places consumers can access health and illness care.
  • Equity of Care: We will lead the way in advancing equity of care and reducing disparities for all in our communities.


  • Our Living Our Mission Measures are both a common definition of success for our organization and the centerpiece for monitoring and managing performance throughout Catholic Health Initiatives.
  • The Living Our Mission Measures are updated quarterly. The CHI Board of Stewardship Trustees, market boards and leadership teams across the country use them to monitor local and national performance.
