Our Vision 

 

Proclaiming God’s healing presence through our exceptional health care services. 

 

HSHS Core Values 

 
 

Our values express the Franciscan spirit and our special charism. We serve with values that are important within this Franciscan health care ministry: 

Respect

 

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. 


Care

 

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 and colleagues. Many times, it is thought of as a bedside behavior, but it also belongs in administrative offices, cafeterias and boardrooms.

 

Competence

 

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 competent 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.

 

Joy

 

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.
