From large sophisticated health systems to direct service to those in need, our Congregation extends the healing ministry of Jesus Christ through direct patient assistance and sponsorships. In the United States, we sponsor Sisters of Charity Health System (SCH), co-sponsor CHRISTUS Health, and co-sponsor the Catholic hospitals within Dignity Health.
The fifth largest health system in the nation with 39 hospitals across three states, 22 of which are Catholic-based facilities. The mission and values were founded upon teamwork and innovation; faith and compassion; and advocacy and action.
To extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ is the mission of CHRISTUS Health. Ranked among the top 10 Catholic health systems in the United States by size, the CHRISTUS Health system includes more than 40 hospitals and facilities in seven U.S. states, Chile, Colombia and six states in Mexico.
At two centers in Guatemala, our Sisters provide places of haven for the abandoned and elderly in need. At El Amparo de San José, Huehuetenango Hogar de Mi Hermano/Hermana and El Esquipulas, healing comes through spiritual and physical care, along with a loving sense of home and family.
We also offer care to the elderly through our co-sponsorship of CHRISTUS Health and our co-sponsorship of the Catholic hospitals within Dignity Health. In Ireland, we provide care to the elderly at Carrigoran House with senior services across a number of care continuums, including independent living, assisted living, convalescence, respite care, long term and dementia / Alzheimer’s care and day care.
