Our Mission, Values, and Vision

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

Our Core Values: 
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN.

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 
in a collaborative manner.

Our Vision: 
WHAT WE ARE STRIVING TO DO. 
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:
WHO WE ARE. 
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. 

OUR SYMBOL
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.

Diversity and Inclusion

CHRISTUS Health has long recognized the importance of diversity and inclusion. These fundamentals not only underpin our core mission, they also guide our interaction with patients, associates and the communities we serve.

To guide and champion these efforts, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion focuses on training and education, recruitment and retention, equity in care, community partnership and supplier diversity and creating accountability across the board.

At CHRISTUS Health, we define diversity as "everyone and everything with no one and nothing left out." We recognize the worth of each unique human being, and respect personal differences because they strengthen us collectively.

We care about every person who is part of our mission. Our definition of inclusion is "engaging all who participate in our mission." At CHRISTUS, we believe it is critical that each person is able to contribute their best talents, skills, abilities and experiences. We are committed to fostering and encouraging growth and opportunity for all. Creating an inclusive environment is directly linked to our performance, profitability and success.

Our mission here at CHRISTUS Health is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ for ALL. Our patients' receive treatment that includes caring for each part of their total being. We strive to ensure each patient gets culturally and linguistically competent care tailored to their unique needs.

Through our continued focus on excellence, we embrace CHRISTUS' sacred name and seek to create a culture in which our mission and core values are truly exemplified, ensuring that the lives of those we serve are sustained and strengthened by the care we provide.

Unique individuals united in the spirit of excellence . . . united in a mission of healing. That's CHRISTUS Health.

The CHRISTUS Physician Group (Corporate Office) is donating over $2,000 in Christmas gifts to a needy family in the Hurst Euless Bedford ISD. The family has six children (ages 12, 9, 7, 4, 2, and 6 months) with minimum waged, working parents and live in a weekly-pay apartment, which by ISD standards is classified as homeless. They are like many "working poor" in our country, who need compassionate support and a helping hand, especially at Christmas.
