As a member of Catholic Health East and sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, the mission of St. Mary's Health Care System is to be a compassionate healing presence in our community, committed to the sacredness of human life and the dignity of each person we serve.
We will respect the needs and value the dignity of every individual and continually seek to improve the lives of all we serve, including patients, co-workers, physicians and those with whom we partner. We will optimize our clinical performance and will maintain high standards of stewardship and accountability. We will be progressive and responsive to change across the health care continuum and will be considered a vital part of the community.
We believe each person is a manifestation of the sacredness of human life.
We demonstrate our connectedness to each other through inclusive and compassionate relationships.
We advocate for a society in which all can realize their full potential and achieve the common good.
We give priority to those society ignores.
We care for and strengthen the ministry of all resources entrusted to us.
We dare to take the risks our faith demands of us.
We keep our word and are faithful to who we say we are.
We offer empathy and care in times of human suffering.
We continually improve the care and services we provide to our patients, physicians, co-workers and community.
