Covenant Health

Our mission

Rooted in a tradition 150-years strong

We are called to continue the healing ministry of Jesus by serving with compassion, upholding the sacredness of life in all stages, and caring for the whole person—body, mind and soul.

Our strategic directions

  • SERVE: we will strengthen our mission and live our values to meet the needs of those we serve through excellence in care, an engaged team and wise use of our resources
  • TRANSFORM and GROW: we will transform the health system and grow through integration, innovation and shared learnings to respond to the strengths and needs of our communities, especially those most vulnerable.
  • CONTRIBUTE: we will leverage our legacy to maximize the strategic contribution of Catholic health care
