Our Mission

Why St. Joseph Hospital

At St. Joseph Hospital, our Mission is to provide healing and care for the whole person in service to all in our communities, which is why offering a healing presence and guidance to support the well-being of patients, their families, and health care staff is very important to us.

The entire team in Mission wholeheartedly believes an integral part of care is meeting the spiritual and religious needs of our patients, regardless of their beliefs, tradition, or spirituality.

We proudly offer patients appropriate prayer, comfort, and support to help facilitate healing, recovery, and peace
