As part of the Provena Health system, our mission is to build communities of healing and hope. In December 1997, Provena Health was established as a new Catholic integrated healthcare delivery system, formed by the merger of Franciscan Sisters Healthcare Corporation, ServantCor, and Mercy Center for Health Care Services.
Adapted from the word “providence,” which means “divine guidance or care,” the name of our system is Provena Health. The word “Provena” was selected to indicate that we look to God for strength and guidance and seek to share this divine strength and guidance with those we serve. “Health” was selected to indicate that our healing ministry includes both the provision of healthcare and the promotion of health in mind, body and spirit.
Provena Health, a Catholic health system, builds communities of healing and hope by compassionately responding to human need in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
Provena Health providers are known for clinical and service excellence, and are the preferred choice based on responsiveness to community needs, quality, value, and innovation.
Building on the faith and heritage of our founding religious congregations, we commit ourselves to these values that flow from our mission and our identity as a Catholic healthcare ministry.
We affirm the individuality of each person through fairness, dignity, and compassion.
We demonstrate the courage to speak and act honestly to build trust.
We use our human and economic resources responsibly, with a special concern for the poor and vulnerable.
We achieve exceptional performance through continuous growth and development.
