Our Mission, Vision and Values
Here on the North Coast, where the redwoods meet the sea, it is not only
a nice place to visit...it's a natural place to live.
The Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange have been administering to the health
care needs of families in our community for more than 90 years, and we
are committed to the highest standards of excellence in the delivery of
health care and to ministering to the needs of the whole person - body,
mind and spirit.
We bring people together to provide compassionate care, promote health
improvement and create healthy communities.
To extend the healing ministry of Jesus in the tradition of the Sisters
of St. Joseph of Orange by continually improving the health and quality
of life of people in the communities we serve.
The mission is evidenced in many ways: through grants awarded to community
entities; community services; physician referrals, youth programs, and
the dedication of employees to carry out the mission every day. We are
proud of the medical services offered and caliber of personnel within
our health system, and we look forward to serving the north coast health
needs well into the future.
This commitment is expressed and demonstrated in our four core values:
Dignity, Excellence, Service, and Justice.
Dignity: We respect each person as an inherently valuable member of the human community
and as a unique expression of life.
Service: We bring together people who recognize that every interaction is a unique
opportunity to serve one another, the community, and society.
Excellence: We foster personal and professional development, accountability, innovation,
teamwork, and commitment to quality.
Justice: We advocate for systems and structures that are attuned to the needs of
the vulnerable and disadvantaged and that promote a sense of community
among all persons.
