Mission, Vision and Values

A mission to heal, a promise to care


The Mission of Catholic Health Initiatives is to nurture the healing ministry of the Church, supported by education and research. Fidelity to the Gospel urges us to emphasize human dignity and social justice as we create healthier communities.


We are the South Sound’s first choice for healing of mind, body and spirit.


Reverence – Profound respect and awe for all creation, the foundation that shapes spirituality, our relationships with others and our journey to God.

Integrity – Moral wholeness, soundness, fidelity, trust and truthfulness in all we do.

Compassion – Solidarity with one another and the capacity to enter into another’s joy and sorrow.

Excellence – Preeminent performance, becoming the benchmark, and putting forth our personal and professional best.
