About Us

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.

The Mission

As expressions of God’s healing love, witnessed through the ministry of Jesus, we are steadfast in serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

Our Values

Our five core values of compassion, dignity, justice, excellence and integrity shape our interactions with those whom we are privileged to serve.

Compassion

Jesus taught and healed with compassion for all. –Matthew 4:24
We reach out to those in need and offer comfort as Jesus did. We nurture the spiritual, emotional and physical well-being of one another and those we serve. Through our healing presence, we accompany those who suffer.

Dignity

All people have been created in the image of God. –Genesis 1:27
We value, encourage and celebrate the gifts in one another. We respect the inherent dignity and worth of every individual. We recognize each interaction as a sacred encounter.

Justice

Act with justice, love with kindness and walk humbly with your God. –Micah 6:8
We foster a culture that promotes unity and reconciliation. We strive to care wisely for our people, our resources and our earth. We stand in solidarity with the most vulnerable, working to remove the causes of oppression and promoting justice for all.

Excellence

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart. –Colossians 3:23
We set the highest standards for ourselves and our ministries. Through transformation and innovation, we strive to improve the health and quality of life in our communities. We commit to compassionate, safe and reliable practices for the care of all.

Integrity

Let us love not merely with words or speech but with actions in truth. –1 John 3:18
We hold ourselves accountable to do the right things for the right reasons. We speak the truth with courage and respect. We pursue authenticity with humility and simplicity.

Our Vision

Health for a Better World

Our Promise

“Know me, care for me, ease my way.”
