Health is a mission-driven organization committed to making every patient’s life better — mind, body and spirit. Delivering high quality patient care is central to our Mission and to our ministry.

We want you to feel confident that you will receive the finest possible care when you come to us. Anything less would fall short of what the Sisters who founded our health system expect from us — and of what we expect from ourselves.

Health Care Quality Measures

Process measures indicate what a provider does to maintain or improve health, either for healthy people or for those diagnosed with a health care condition. These measures typically reflect generally accepted recommendations for clinical practice. For example:

  • The percentage of people receiving preventive services (such as mammograms or immunizations).
  • The percentage of people with diabetes who had their blood sugar tested and controlled.
