Our History

Medical pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist Church established an innovative health care program in Battle Creek, Michigan, in 1866, looking to the healing ministry of Christ for inspiration.

During a time when many medical treatments were as harmful as the diseases they were intended to cure, the revolutionary health care center not only treated diseases, but also taught people how to prevent them through good nutrition, exercise and hygiene. It was a place where each person was valued as a creation of God, and where caregivers created a healing environment focused on providing extraordinary whole-person care. Their commitment and philosophy continue today in hundreds of hospitals, nursing homes and clinics around the world.

Part of this worldwide network, Adventist Health System was founded in 1973 to support and strengthen the Seventh-day Adventist health care organizations in the Southern and Southwestern regions of the United States. Today it is a national leader in quality, safety and patient satisfaction, comprised of 46 hospital campuses and more than 80,000 employees.

Although separated by geography, each of our facilities is united by the mission of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ. Today we continue the tradition of whole-person care by practicing and sharing CREATION Health, a blueprint for living a healthy, happy life based on the principles given in the Bible’s creation story: Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust, Interpersonal relationships, Outlook and Nutrition.

Our Mission & Values

Adventist Health System employees draw motivation and direction from six strongly held principles. These principles guide the manner in which we treat each other and those we serve.

Christian Mission

We exist to serve the needs of our communities in harmony with Christ's healing ministry and incorporate Christian values at every level of service.

Focus on Community Wellness

We commit time, talent and financial support to educate our neighbors in the principles of illness prevention and healthful living.

Quality and Service Excellence

We strive to meet or exceed both the service standards of the health care industry and the expectations of the patients we serve and measure our success through continuous surveying of patient satisfaction.

High Ethical Standards

We conduct our business with integrity, honesty and fairness. As responsible stewards, we use our financial resources wisely by choosing business practices which are cost-effective, productive and result in a fair return on investment.

Compassion

We are sensitive to the needs of the individuals and families we serve and meet their needs with kindness and empathy.

Cultural Diversity

We value the diversity of our patients, employees, business colleagues and visitors and treat them with kindness and respect regardless of their background, race, religion or culture.

If you are new to nursing, we invite you to become the nurse you were meant to be. Our Nurse Residency Program is designed to help you make a smooth transition into the hospital and specialty unit of your choice. Along the way, you can count on us to provide the support, training and mentorship you need to become the nurse you were meant to be.

Some of our program benefits include:

  • Supportive, faith-based environment that is nationally recognized for excellence in patient safety
  • Tuition reimbursement for BSN and Master’s Degrees
  • One-on-one training and mentorship with an experienced preceptor
  • Opportunities to participate in volunteer efforts both locally and globally
  • Health and dental insurance effective on your first day at most campuses
  • On-site child care available at select campuses
  • Clinical ladders to help you advance in your career are available at most campuses
  • Comprehensive Employee Wellness Program

"I have enjoyed the residency program because I feel that the instructors are there for me, and I was given plenty of time with a clinical coach before going it alone. I have and will continue to recommend this program to any nurse with limited nursing experience. It is a great program and will only help a new nurse hone in on the clinical skills needed in everyday nursing practice."

- Jackie, Florida Hospital Tampa
