The biennial Catholic Health Assembly is the nation's premier gathering of Catholic health care leaders. It is the only conference where leaders in Catholic health care unite in a spirit of community around our shared mission, fostering connections, acquiring knowledge and celebrating extraordinary contributions to the ministry.

Themed "Embrace Bold," Assembly participants will delve into thought-provoking keynotes, participate in engaging peer tracks and immerse themselves in interactive breakout sessions. Assembly is a must-attend event for both seasoned leaders and emerging professionals in Catholic health care who have been entrusted with carrying forward the legacy and charisms of our founding congregations.


Catholic health care plays a vital role in delivering high-quality, compassionate care to patients and communities across the United States. But our ability to carry forward our mission is threatened by an increasing number of daunting challenges including rapid technological change, bitter political polarization and societal distrust of institutions. To propel our ministry into the future, we must unite in a collective voice that clearly articulates our commitment to empowering bold change to elevate human flourishing for all. Join us for an empowering experience where bold ideas converge to shape the future of Catholic health care — "For Health, For Humanity, For the Common Good."


The main stage will feature thought leaders in health care policy, innovation, and Catholic identity; while breakout sessions and peer conversations will provide a rich opportunity for dialogue and engagement around the most pressing issues of our time, including artificial intelligence, health care reform and the unique role of Catholic health care in fostering unity among people of diverse faiths and backgrounds. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage with pre-Assembly learning modules that explore the nuances of where the Catholic vision of health care diverges from that of American marketplace health care.
