Administrative Fellowship Program
Fellowship Mission and Purpose
St. Joseph Health's Northern California region offers a unique fellowship
experience that allows the fellows to observe and contribute at an executive
level, to a values based organization, who has had long-standing commitment
to the communities they serve. The one-year fellowship program is coordinated
and supported by the respective Chief Operating Officer of each facility
as well as the strategic services team.
The rotation program is designed to cultivate leaders in the field of healthcare
through exposure to a wide range of hands-on operational, financial, strategic
and project management initiatives. In addition, executive teams support
and encourage active engagement with local and regional leadership involvement,
through the participation in leadership meetings and one-on-one mentorship.
St. Joseph Health looks for driven individuals who closely align and seek
to contribute to our mission, vision and values.
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.
We bring people together to provide compassionate care, promote health
improvement and create healthy communities.
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.
We are guided, in all we do, by our core values of Dignity, Service, Excellence,
These principles speak to the heart of who we are, both as a values-based
organization and as individuals dedicated to the well-being of others.
They are the core values by which we endeavor to make a difference in
the lives of the people we serve.
We respect each person as an inherently valuable member of the human community
and as a unique expression of life.
We bring together people who recognize that every interaction is a unique
opportunity to serve one another, the community, and society.
We foster personal and professional development, accountability, innovation,
teamwork, and commitment to quality.
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.
