Our Mission Statement is just 35 words, but there are profound ideas behind them. It is a formal declaration of CommonSpirit’s purpose; an affirmation of why we exist.
As CommonSpirit Health, we make the healing presence of God known in our world by improving the health of the people we serve, especially those who are vulnerable, while we advance social justice for all.
“As CommonSpirit Health,” for instance, celebrates the union of two influential health ministries into one national health ministry.
“We make the healing presence of God known” is, of course, the reason CommonSpirit exists’ it’s the calling that has drawn us all together. “In our world” affirms our commitment to people and communities on a local, national, and even global scale.
“Improving the health of the people we serve” speaks to the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of people along the entire health continuum.
“Those who are vulnerable” signals our dedication to helping people as they experience the fragility of the human conditions.
And, “advance social justice for all” is our pledge to leverage our talents and partnerships for the benefit of the common good, and to listen and be transformed by the voices we hear.
