Mission & Values
Founded in 1875 by the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis, HSHS St. John's Hospital combines modern technology with the caring spirit of our original founders.
"To reveal and embody Christ's healing love for all people through our high quality Franciscan health care ministry."
Our mission's two facets -- business and spiritual -- help us redefine our purpose every day. The business side manages the realities of how to serve those that need our help, while the spiritual side focuses on the people who come to be healed. That spiritual focus sets us apart -- surfacing in the values we hold and our commitment to service.
TORCH Award winners at HSHS St. John's Hospital are colleagues with 25 or more years of service who live our core values of Respect, Care, Competence and Joy. These individuals are nominated for these awards by their coworkers.
