Annual Report

2012 Report to the Community from the Sisters of Charity Health System

In May 2013, the Sisters of Charity Health System hosted a series of State of the System presentations. Hundreds of board members, leaders, caregivers, employees and friends of the health system and our ministries participated in these events, which were held in Cleveland and Canton, Ohio, and Columbia, South Carolina.

To all of those who joined us for these important sessions, we extended our sincere thanks. For those who were not able to attend in person, we share the following materials highlighting our significant collective impact in the past year, and we invite you to join in celebrating our many accomplishments. We are truly grateful of the commitment of all of you to living the mission of the Sisters of Charity Health System.

Together as a family of ministries, which includes five acute care Catholic hospitals, two elder care facilities, three grantmaking foundations, and six outreach organizations, we achieved so much in 2012.

Learn more about our collective achievements through the following:


Through all of these pieces, there is an important common thread: Together, we are making lasting impact on the communities we serve. We encourage you to share our achievements, our vibrant future and our great commitment to the community.

As you well know, we have a bold vision to be a beacon of hope devoted to healing and addressing the unmet needs of individuals, families and communities through a network of innovative services. And, we are committed to continuing our mission to extend the healing ministry of Jesus as a family of ministries.

Our collective mission responds to the needs of the people we serve in ways like no one else. We provide the very best care, we address unmet needs, we solve problems creatively, we invest strategically, we deliver on our mission and we do this best by collaborating with each other. Together, we light the way.  Join us.
