Catholic Health Alliance of Canada
Inspired by the Gospel and grounded in shared beliefs and values, the Alliance is a forum for Catholic health and social services Sponsors in Canada, to exchange ideas and develop shared strategic initiatives that support their ability to strengthen the healing ministry of Jesus.
The Alliance is comprised of 12 Sponsor* organizations. Together, these organizations sponsor approximately 100 Catholic hospitals, community health centres, nursing homes, and long-term care facilities throughout Canada.
* Definition of Sponsor / Sponsorship - “Sponsorship of a health care ministry is a formal relationship between an authorized Catholic organization [juridic person in the Church] such as a religious congregation, diocesan Bishop or the Holy See (the Vatican), and a legally formed organization entered into for the sake of promoting and sustaining Christ’s healing ministry to people in need.”
