Religious Sponsors

Dignity Health is a healing ministry. Our legacy of service to the poor and underserved is deeply rooted in the founding of Dignity Health by our religious sponsors in 1986. Today our sponsors continue to serve on our boards and in our hospitals. They include:

  • Sisters of Mercy of the Americas
  • Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena
  • Sisters of St. Dominic of the Most Holy Rosary
  • Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word
  • Sisters of St. Dominic of the Most Holy Name
  • Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity

Their healing work with the poor and underserved extends throughout the United States as well as to communities abroad, in countries such as Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Europe.

In addition, it was always the founders’ vision that Dignity Health would welcome other groups that shared their vision, values and commitment to caring and advocating for the poor.
