At CommonSpirit Health, their purpose is shaped by one thing — humankindness. It's what keeps them thoughtfully working together under one shared mission, and it's also what differentiates them from other healthcare spaces.

CommonSpirit is a non-profit Catholic health system aimed at advancing the health of all people and their surrounding communities, as well as for advocating for the poor and vulnerable and innovating how and where healing can happen. To achieve this, CommonSpirit relies on five core values:

  1. Compassion — Care with listening, empathy and love.

  2. Inclusion — Celebrate each person’s gifts and voice.

  3. Integrity — Inspire trust through honesty. 

  4. Excellence — Serve with fullest passion, creativity and stewardship.

  5. Collaboration — Commit to the power of working together. 

The employees at CommonSpirit are talented and passionate people who exemplify these values every day. And, the emphasis on humankindness doesn't stop at CommonSpirit either!  CommonSpirit Health, in alignment with three other companies, aims to make the world a better place:

  • Dignity Health: A California-based nonprofit public-benefit corporation that operates hospitals and ancillary care facilities at more than 40 hospitals and care centers across California, Arizona and Nevada.

  • CHI: A nonprofit, faith-based health system formed in 1996 through the consolidation of four Catholic health systems and is currently one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the U.S.

  • MercyOne: A system of hospitals, clinics and healthcare facilities in Iowa, Nebraska and surrounding communities.

What employees have to say.

"When team members can feel vulnerable with one another, they're able to be their authentic selves. Continually fostering these relationships strengthens their work. It acts to reinforce our organizational commitment: everyone deserves not only a seat at the table but a voice as well." — June Faison, Mission Education, Program Manager, Mission Integration

"I choose CHI Lakeside Women's Health for the caring environment that is given by all staff members within our team. We strive to give the best experience to our patients from the moment they walk in the door to seeing their growing families with their new bundles of joy. We have grown as a team with dignity, faith, and compassion through these unprecedented times and continue to make our patient's health a top priority to our community." — Tasha Goracke, Clinic RN Lead

"My pride for this hospital comes from 15 years of experiencing wonderful staff treating patients like family. We take pride in treating every patient as if they were our parent, spouse, or child. We want their experience to be a positive one, and we want to do our best for them." — Cassandra Hendrickson, Clinical Supervisor
