Our Mission
We help all who come to us for care to maintain and improve their health. We work with people to minimize the effects of injury, disease and disability. We do this by pursuing excellence in care, research and education in a wide range of hospital, clinic, long term and community-based settings.

In the spirit of our founders, we care in the example of Jesus Christ and in keeping with our values. We attend to the wholeness of each person – body, mind and spirit. We are a life-affirming community, nurturing a living spirituality through all stages of life, health, suffering and death. We ensure ongoing ethical reflection.

We advocate for those who are vulnerable and without a voice. We actively pursue and build partnerships to create a better health care system.
Our Values
Respect · Excellence · Compassion

St. Joseph’s mission, vision and values are aligned with those of the St. Joseph’s Health Care Society and the principles of Catholic health care from the Canadian Council of Catholic Bishops.

We are guided by the Health Ethics Guide of the Catholic Health Alliance of Canada.
