Frequently Asked Questions

A.The Sisters of Charity Health System is a family of ministries rooted in the legacy of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine . We are committed to addressing the unmet needs of individuals, families and communities. In 2015, we provided $60.6 million in community benefit, including $45.6 million in unpaid costs of patient care.
