CHRISTUS Health – Why Work For Us?


Our Mission, Values, and Vision

Our Mission: 
To extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. 

Our Core Values: 

DIGNITY  Respect for the worth of every person, recognition and commitment to the value of diverse individuals and perspectives, and special concern for the poor and underserved. 

INTEGRITY Honesty, justice, and consistency in all relationships. 

EXCELLENCE High standards of service and performance. 

COMPASSION Service in a spirit of empathy, love, and concern. 

STEWARDSHIP Wise and just use of talents and resources

Our Vision: 
CHRISTUS HEALTH,  a Catholic health ministry, will be a leader, a partner and an advocate in the creation of innovative health and wellness solutions that improve the lives of individuals and communities so that all may experience God's healing presence and love. 

Our Name and Symbol:
CHRISTUS is Latin for "Christ," and proclaims publicly the core of our mission. 
OUR NAME choice also recognizes the heritage of our two congregational sponsors, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word in Houston and San Antonio. Jesus Christ is the Incarnate Word, the Word of God made flesh. It is, therefore, only fitting that it is in another form of His name that our health ministries are called together. 

Reflects the healing ministry of Jesus Christ - a combination of a medical cross and a religious cross. The flowing banner on the cross is a common symbol of the risen Christ, while the royal purple signifies Christ. The flowing banner also conveys a sense of motion as we move forward into a new era of service to our communities.

    I have been working at CHRISTUS Health full-time (More than 10 years)


    I enjoy the other nurses and physicians that I work with, we are like a family. Lots of teamwork.


    I don't feel that administration has our back and only care about what the numbers say. Short staffed the majority of the time and in the critical care unit, that can be very dangerous. And if you do get assigned 3 patients, they tend to overlook patient acuity.

    Advice to Management

    I know it's a big deal to have good patient satisfaction ratings for reimbursement but it is still important to have employee satisfaction, as it goes hand-in-hand. For example, the clinical ladder committee at our facility practically made it difficult to achieve even a level I this year. Previous years, I was able to get Level II. Took away points for obtaining Master's degree - there has to be some way to offset the points lost from not being able to volunteer since our time is quite limited.
