We are unified in an unshakeable belief that Catholic health care starts with a spiritual purpose: a deep-rooted calling to recognize and serve each person as sacred a human being. Catholic health care organizations have cared for Canadians in small towns and urban centres for over 400 years. Catholic women of faith laid the foundation for today’s health system, driven by audacious bravery and a deep desire to live the healing ministry of Jesus.
