About the Sisters of Charity Health System

“One loving heart sets another on fire.” — Adapted from writings of St. Augustine

The Sisters of Charity Health System was established in 1982 as the parent corporation for the sponsored ministries of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine in Ohio and South Carolina. The Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, since founding in 1851, continues a faith-based legacy of high-quality, compassionate care in partnership with its co-ministers, who are the heart and hands of the ministry.

The Sisters of Charity Health System oversees the St. Vincent Charity Health Campus in Cleveland, Ohio, which includes the St. Vincent Charity Community Health Center. The health center is a faith-based, high-quality outpatient health care provider offering services in primary care, occupational health, behavioral health and addiction medicine, urgent care, psychiatric emergency services, and more.

The Sisters of Charity Health System provides residential eldercare services at Regina Health Center in Richfield, Ohio, and Light of Hearts Villa in Bedford, Ohio.

These organizations have earned national recognition for cutting-edge achievements in clinical practice and innovation, active involvement in meeting ever-changing community needs, and shared commitment to representing the compassion and excellence that distinguishes Catholic health care.
