Our mission, vision and values

CommonSpirit’s mission, vision and values inform every aspect of our work each day, and remind us that we serve our patients, their families, our communities – and also each other.  Our mission, vision and values work hand in hand: the first states our purpose, the next declares our ambition, and our values guide our actions and shape our culture. Together, they help us achieve the health care future we’re beginning to build.

Mission, Vision and Values

Our vision

CommonSpirit’s vision statement conveys what we aspire to be as a health care ministry, and how we will get there.

A deeper reflection on our vision statement reveals the depth of its 16 powerful words:

“A healthier future for all” represents our shared calling. CommonSpirit will continually strive to create conditions and invest resources where all can experience a healthier future.

“Inspired by faith” draws on the deep faith of our founding congregations as well as the faith of the thousands of employees and millions of patients and families who entrust their health care to us every day.

“Driven by innovation” reflects our quest for “better” and conveys that we will continuously search for new and more effective ways to heal body, mind and spirit.

“Powered by our humanity” speaks to our compassion for one another. We believe in human dignity, and that simple acts of kindness – reflecting the face of God to each person – will make others experience the healing presence of God in each encounter.

Our values

Compassion: We show care with listening, empathy, and love and accompany and comfort those in need of healing.

Inclusion: We celebrate each person's gifts and voice and respect the dignity of all.

Integrity: We inspire trust through honesty and demonstrate courage in the face of inequity.

Excellence: We serve with fullest passion, creativity, and stewardship, and exceed expectations of others and ourselves.
