We believe all lives should be filled with health and well-being. That each person can have the knowledge to make the best and healthiest choices for themselves and their families. With access to care and services that make acting on these choices easy. And personal attention from people who pay attention, understand your frustrations and work to eliminate them. It means fixing things together because that’s the only way it can happen.

Catholic Health Initiatives offers expertise, convenience, resources and best in class care from a foundation of togetherness. To serve communities better, we’ve grown into one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the nation. And we’re not done yet. We currently offer care in 18 states across 99 hospitals, including two academic health centers, major teaching hospitals and 29 critical-access facilities; community health-services organizations; accredited nursing colleges; home-health agencies; living communities; and other facilities and services that span the inpatient and outpatient continuum of care. We connect agencies, communities and facilities with a goal of bringing everyone the care they need, wherever they need it.

There is nothing we can’t do together.
