V.P. Mission Integration
In the Franciscan Tradition, out of reverence for the dignity of every person, our mission is to provide excellent health care and promote wellness throughout the Brazos Valley.
Extending the healing ministry of Jesus, the St. Joseph Health System reflects God's love and compassion by providing excellent healthcare.
Reverence - We believe that each person is created equal in God's image and likeness. Therefore, we treat each person with respect, justice and dignity.
Service - We believe that each person is called to achieve full potential of mind, body and spirit. To enable the fulfillment of that potential, we pledge to render service to all with sensitivity, compassion and commitment.
Stewardship - We believe that each person shares responsibility to fulfill our specific role and to promote the proper utilization of the environment, of goods and services. This enables us to maintain quality relationships and care in our ministry.
