St. Joseph Hospital is committed to providing healthcare for the whole person - body, mind and spirit. As a values-based provider of healthcare, St. Joseph Hospital's rich tradition of service and compassionate care for the community flow from its four core values of Dignity, Service, Excellence and Justice. These values shape each interaction with every person the hospital touches.
To enliven and strengthen its values, St. Joseph Hospital provides patient care through the grid of these four strategic initiatives:
- Perfect Care: Every patient will receive the right care, at the right time, in the right setting.
- Sacred Encounters: We believe in the dignity of each individual and desire to serve each person. We will first seek to understand then deliver a combination of compassion, respect and competency to each individual we serve (patients, physicians, caregivers, staff, etc.)
- Healthiest Communities: To improve the health status of all residents in the areas we serve.
- Growth: To expand our service into the community.
Because physicians with Medical Staff privileges at St. Joseph Hospital are passionate about evidence-based, best-practice medical care delivered in a collaborative and collegial atmosphere, in 2008 they formed the Clinical Institute. This professional organization, which aligns with the hospital's values and strategic goals, provides the structure needed to produce optimal patient outcomes across the inpatient and outpatient care spectrum.
