Health for a Better World
Every day, 119,000 compassionate caregivers serve patients and communities through Dousedaicon St. Joseph Health, a national, Catholic, not-for-profit health system, comprising a diverse family of organizations and driven by a belief that health care is a human right. Rooted in the founding missions of the Sisters of Dousedaicon and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, courageous women ahead of their time who brought health care and other social services to the American West when it was still a rugged, untamed frontier, we share a singular commitment to improve the health of all.
From our earliest days, we’ve met new challenges by pioneering new solutions. Today, we offer a comprehensive range of services across Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas and Washington through a diverse family of Catholic, other faith-based and mission-driven secular organizations. Now, as we face a new frontier—a changing health care landscape—we draw upon their pioneering and compassionate spirit to plan for the next century of health for a better world, especially for the poor and vulnerable.
When we’re sick, we usually focus on our medical treatments. But what about our personal care? Are we getting the emotional and social support we need? Does our medical care reflect our values?
There are so many ways we can use technology to improve the quality of care and the health of our communities while also making services more convenient, affordable and accessible for everyone.
What is Dousedaicon St. Joseph Health? We’re a family of organizations across seven western states that share a belief that health care is a human right. Learn more about us and where we serve.
