St. Joseph Health

Your Northern California partner in health.


Our Mission

To extend the healing ministry of Jesus in the tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange by continually improving the health and quality of life of people in the communities we serve.

The mission is evidenced in many ways: through grants awarded to community entities; community services; physician referrals, youth programs, and the dedication of employees to carry out the mission every day. We are proud of the medical services offered and caliber of personnel within our health system, and we look forward to serving the north coast health needs well into the future.

This commitment is expressed and demonstrated in our four core values: Dignity, Excellence, Service, and Justice.

Our Vision

We bring people together to provide compassionate care, promote health improvement and create healthy communities.

We bring together people who recognize that every interaction is a unique opportunity to serve one another, the community, and society.


We foster personal and professional development, accountability, innovation, teamwork, and commitment to quality.


We advocate for systems and structures that are attuned to the needs of the vulnerable and disadvantaged and that promote a sense of community among all persons.
