In the spirit of Christ and the example of Francis of Assisi, the Mission of OSF HealthCare is to serve persons with the greatest care and love in a community that celebrates the Gift of Life.
Embracing God's great gift of life, we are one OSF ministry transforming health care to improve the lives of those we serve.
This Vision refers to all components of OSF HealthCare including OSF Healthcare System, OSF Healthcare Foundation and OSF Saint Francis, Inc.
Philosophy & Values:
We, The Sisters of The Third Order of St. Francis believe: That led by the Spirit of the Gospels and the example of St. Francis, the special purpose of our existence as a corporation is to provide for the total well being of those we serve.
That every person, created in the image of God and composed of body and soul, is a human being endowed with intellect and free will, completely dependent upon God for existence and destined to possess God in heavenly beatitude. Because of the dignity of the human person and his moral conscience, each person has certain God-given rights with corresponding obligations toward his Creator, his fellow man and himself.
OSF HealthCare fulfills, through a service of love and compassion, a mission of caring and peace consistent with the needs of the Church and the people served. The love of Christ permeates its work as it strives to continue the healing ministry of Christ and His Church to the total person; to be love, mercy, inspiration, tenderness and compassion to those whose lives are entered.
From this philosophy flow these values which permeate all of our endeavors:
Justice: Personal worth and dignity of every person we serve regardless of race, color, religion and ability to pay
Compassion: Caring response to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the people we serve
Integrity: Decision-making based on Catholic ethical principles and Catholic social teachings in every activity of the system
Teamwork: Collaboration with each other, with physicians, and with other providers to deliver comprehensive, integrated and quality health care
Employee Well-Being: Concern for the physical, spiritual, emotional and economical well-being of employees
Supportive Work Environment: Quality work environments which focus on comprehensive, integrated quality service and opportunities for employee growth
Trust: Open and honest communication to foster trust relationships among ourselves and with those we serve
Stewardship: Responsible stewardship of the financial, human and technological resources of the system
Leadership: Leadership in the health field and in the communities we serve
