We Light The Way

The Sisters of Charity Health System is made up of two acute care, Catholic hospitals; three grantmaking foundations; two elder care facilities; and several health and human service outreach organizations. These ministries collectively continue and advance the work of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, a congregation that since its founding in Cleveland in 1851 continues a faith-based legacy of high-quality, compassionate care for all of God's people.

Together, we light the way. Join us to light the way to:

  • New beginnings and healthier tomorrows
  • Health and wellness for individuals, families and communities
  • Transforming futures by challenging the status quo
  • Sustainable change through listening, connecting and empowering
  • New futures by carrying forward our sisters’ legacy
  • A more just society through advocacy and action
