Catholic Health Initiatives

We believe all lives should be filled with health and well-being; that each person should have the knowledge and resources 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 you deserve personal attention from people who acknowledge and understand your frustrations and work to eliminate them. It means working together because that’s the way we all improve.

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 the third-largest nonprofit health system in the nation. And we’re not done yet. We currently offer care in 18 states through 101 hospitals and clinics, including three academic health centers and major teaching hospitals as well as 29 critical-access facilities, community health-service organizations, and nursing colleges. We connect agencies, communities and facilities with a goal of bringing everyone the care they need where they need it.

There is nothing we can't do together.
