We are guests in the human experiences our patients see as their lives. Each and every human life is a precious gift. Regardless of where our patients are in their lives, be it a time of birth, of growth, of maturity, of healing or the precious moments as the human body ceases to function, we are here to be of service, to meet their needs, to offer support and share our God-given skills and gifts.
We make a difference.
Our Core Values of Respect, Care, Competence and Joy support this concept and are key to our consistent, quality delivery of health care. These Values are the guiding principles of all we do and express our Franciscan spirit to serve.
RESPECT means the Franciscan respect for life from conception to death and for the dignity of each individual person. Respect is a commitment to freeing and empowering each person to develop to his or her full potential. It is listening to concerns and taking appropriate action.
CARE embodies the concern, compassion and sensitivity with which we care for patients as individuals on a one-to-one basis. It depicts our way of dealing with patients, clients, employees and co-workers. Many times, it is thought of as bedside behavior, but it also belongs in business offices, cafeterias and boardrooms. It is focusing on needs and making them a priority.
COMPETENCE means that our work is performed and our institutions are managed with the highest level of skill and ability. We are committed to recruiting and developing people who are proficient in their work and whose values reflect our own. Our values are an integral part of our system’s strategic plan, which provides the overall framework for local activities. It is sharing compassion and bringing comfort to all.
JOY is the manner in which our colleagues and all who join us in our ministry seek to perform their work – the internal fulfillment of caring for others. It is an essential ingredient in bringing a sense of hope to those who suffer. It is honoring individuality and serving in the manner of St. Francis.

Passing the Torch
We are all embarking on a greater Mission than ourselves. A Mission in which the patient-centered goals of the team complement the patient-focused objectives of every individual colleague. A Mission in which “We” succeed when “I” take positive, proactive and compassionate action. This is the essence of the I Promise Program.
By promising to carry on the Mission of the Sisters who came before us, we are accepting an invitation to provide authentic, compassionate care to all served by our hospital. When we honor this promise, we are connecting with our heritage, and ensuring that the spirit of our important healing care is available to everyone, both now and in the future. Jesus said, “What I just did was to give you an example: as I have done, so you must do.”
