Our Values

Our employees strive each day to serve our callers in accordance with the philosophy and values of the Franciscan Sisters of Mary. We value the sacredness and dignity of each person, no matter how young or old. Therefore, we find these five values consistent with both our heritage and ministerial priorities:

Compassion – We reveal the healing presence of God through compassionate care focused on the fullness of the person.

Respect – We respect life at all stages and promote the dignity and well-being of every person.

Excellence – We provide exceptional care and service through employees and physicians dedicated to our Mission.

Stewardship – We use financial, human and natural resources responsibly and care for the environment.

Community – We cultivate relationships that inspire service and promote justice in our organization and throughout our communities, with special concern for the poor and marginalized.

These five words best describe how we treat you and your family. We believe that our caring and commitment to the whole person and family set us apart and make for the best possible outcomes for your situation.
