A Vibrant Community

Of Members Joined in a Shared Mission

As a community united in a shared mission, CHA members exchange ideas and best practices, come together at meetings and events, and participate in a variety of ministry-wide initiatives. These experiences inspire and renew a vibrant spirit of fellowship to accomplish together what member organizations cannot do on their own.

The association benefits from the insights and experiences of people across Catholic health care who serve on advisory committees and special task forces. They represent a breadth of roles critical to the identity and effectiveness of the health ministry: mission leaders, sponsors, advocacy leaders, ethicists and theologians, as well as governance and management leaders. Also, many leaders from ministry organizations serve the association on its Board of Trustees, providing faithful governance and stewardship of the Catholic Health Association.


The annual Catholic Health Assembly is the premier gathering of Catholic health care leaders in the United States. This two-and-one-half day convention brings leaders from across the ministry together for learning, networking, celebration and renewal. Keynote speakers feature prominent voices from health care, academia, media, public policy and philanthropy.
