Together we’re stronger, better, healthier

Our Story

Catholic Health Initiatives offers expertise, convenience, resources from a foundation of togetherness and shared focus on delivering best-in-class care. To serve communities better, we’ve grown into the second largest nonprofit health system in the nation. And we’re not done yet.

We currently offer care in 17 states across 100 hospitals, including three academic health centers and major teaching hospitals as well as 30 critical access facilities, community health service organizations, and nursing colleges. We also have 22 long-term care facilities, 55 home health service locations and many other sites of care. We connect with other health-focused partners in our communities to bring everyone the care they need, where and when they need it.

Building from our core values of Reverence, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence, we live our mission to nurture the healing ministry of the Catholic Church, supported by education and research. Our vision is to lead the transformation of health care to achieve optimal health and well-being for the individuals and communities we serve, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

Being a champion for those in need.

Catholic Health Initiatives was formed through the alliance of four national Catholic health care systems. Planning began in 1995, when Catholic health leaders began to explore strengthening community health care for the future.

Their goal: To develop and nurture a national health ministry, sponsored and governed by an equal religious-lay partnership, to transform health care delivery and foster vibrant new ministries across the nation to create healthier communities.

Today, CHI is guided by the same pioneer spirit that led women religious to carry out their healing ministry hundreds of years ago. We’re committed to reaching new milestones of clinical quality and advancing an agenda of social justice.

We believe:

  • In working for the greater good.
  • That all lives can achieve optimal health and well-being.
  • That everyone 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.
  • In personal attention from people who pay attention, understand patient frustrations, and work to eliminate them.
  • In improving health and health care together, because that’s the only way it can happen.

Together, we will continue to grow and develop as a dynamic network of care.
