Mission

Inspired by the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, we Presence Health, a Catholic health system, provide compassionate, holistic care with a spirit of healing and hope in the communities we serve.

Presence Health is about connection. Our story began with two ministries joining together. Our name captures the essence of our connection: being present with others.

At the heart of Presence Health are five congregations of Catholic women religious who have come together to co-sponsor our fully integrated health system:

    Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart
    Servants of the Holy Heart of Mary
    Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth
    Sisters of Mercy of the Americas
    Sisters of the Resurrection
