This is Catholic Health Care Videos

The Catholic Health Association is pleased to present This is Catholic Health Care, a video series celebrating the work of our member ministries in advancing human dignity and the common good in their local communities.

The Catholic health ministry is rooted in the belief that every person is a treasure, every life a gift, and every human being a unity of body, mind and spirit. We, the people of Catholic health care, answer God's call to foster healing, act with compassion, and promote wellness for all persons and communities, with special attention to those who are underserved and vulnerable. Through our service, we strive to transform hurt into hope.
