HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital strives for a continuous review and improvement in all of its activities in all areas. In its concern to integrate services with the total health care of the community, HSHS St. Nicholas recognizes its responsibility to participate in community-wide planning, to be responsive to the health needs of the community, to cooperate with others working to alleviate pain and suffering, and to assist in the education of all persons concerning basic health needs.

We encourage all who share in the efforts of the Hospital to make themselves a part of the Franciscan ideal of compassionate care and to render service in such a way as to assert dignity and reverence for others. In keeping with these beliefs, HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital abides by the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Healthcare Services.
