The CHRISTUS Health Foundation (CHF) was developed to assist CHRISTUS Health in providing excellent and exemplary healthcare services to our many communities. In 1999, two historic Catholic charities became one, forming CHRISTUS Health and creating a unique purpose in the modern health care market – to take better care of people. The mission of CHRISTUS Health is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ – the mission that the Sisters of Charity Health Care system and Incarnate Word Health system shared for more than a century.
CHRISTUS Health is an international Catholic, faith-based, not-for-profit health system headquartered in Dallas. It is comprised of almost 350 services and facilities, including more than 50 hospitals and long-term care facilities, 175 clinics and outpatient centers, and dozens of other health ministries and ventures in more than 60 cities in Texas, New Mexico, Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Georgia, Utah and Mexico. The system employs more than 28,000 Associates–including 8,000 physicians on facility medical staffs–that provide care and support for patients. CHRISTUS Health is listed among the top ten Catholic health systems in the U.S., and was named the 2007 Top Leadership Team in Healthcare in the U.S. among large hospitals and health systems by HealthLeaders Media. Whether seeking care in Salt Lake City, Utah, or Coahuila, Mexico, patients discover that the healing spirit is alive at CHRISTUS Health.
The passion of the CHF is to support this CHRISTUS Health ministry and you are cordially invited to help us with that. I would like to thank you in advance for accepting the challenge and being a part of this exciting endeavor. As you can see, CHRISTUS Health makes our communities a priority. Help us help provide you with the exemplary healthcare you deserve.
President and Executive Director
