Each year, National Catholic Sisters Week is celebrated from March 8 – 14, to honor religious women. During National Catholic Sisters Week this year, Dignity Health hospitals honored seven Sisters during a special Mass followed by a luncheon at Dignity Health – St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach, California. The Dignity Health – St. Mary Medical Center physicians and staff expressed gratitude for the combined 80 years of service from the Sisters and their Congregations that co-sponsor the hospitals and who work in various areas of this healthcare ministry. Founded in 1986, our Congregation co-sponsors the Catholic hospitals within the Dignity Health Hospital System.
