We have a strong legacy of caring for the underserved, and our mission compels us to advance social justice for all. Formed in 2019 through the combination of Catholic Health Initiatives and Dignity Health, CommonSpirit Health is one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health systems. Today, CommonSpirit is supported by 150,000 health care professionals across the country, with 25,000 physicians and more than 40,000 nurses who strive to continue that mission.
The CommonSpirit name was inspired by scripture: “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good” (1 Corinthians 12:7 NIV). Those words motivate and guide us every day. They celebrate the healing gift of compassion that God gives to us all, and they remind us of our calling to serve the common good.
