Here to serve the common good.
Two legacies of caring.
One ministry of change.
CommonSpirit Health™ is committed to building healthier communities, advocating for those who are poor and vulnerable, and innovating how and where healing can happen—both inside our hospitals and out in the community.
The result of years of planning, CommonSpirit was created by the alignment of Catholic Health Initiatives and Dignity Health as a single ministry in early 2019.
Our commitment to serve the common good is delivered through the dedicated work of thousands of physicians, advanced practice clinicians, nurses, and staff; through clinical excellence delivered across a system of hospitals and other care centers covering 21 states, and accessible to nearly one in four U.S. residents; and through more than $4 billion annually in charity care, community benefits, and government program services.
Our calling is in our name.
The CommonSpirit name was inspired by scripture: “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good” (1 Corinthians 12:7 NIV). Those words motivate and guide us every day. They celebrate the healing gift of compassion that God gives to us all, and they remind us of our calling to serve the common good.
“Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.”
Innovation moves everyone forward.
In keeping with our commitment to serve the common good, CommonSpirit embraces the responsibility to develop new ways to improve health for all. Here are some of the creative solutions in which we’re already providing our communities greater access to the highest standards of care.
Human Trafficking Response
There are more than 20 million victims of human trafficking and forced labor worldwide. Learn about the survivor/advocate-led program that CommonSpirit developed to train caregivers to identify and respond to actively trafficked victims.
Home-Based Health Care
For many patients, the most convenient and comfortable setting to receive care is in their own home. One of CommonSpirit’s strategic imperatives is to successfully transition hospice, medication therapies, and other care and service into the home environment.
Leveraging the latest technologies and advanced analytics, CommonSpirit is increasing patient satisfaction by making care more efficient. Data intelligence is helping us reduce patients’ length of stay with predictive recommendations, and using virtual- and artificial intelligence-scribing technologies, our physicians can spend less time on administrative work and more time with their patients.
We provide CommonSpirit’s community-based physicians with a data-rich technology platform to help them deliver cancer treatment based on individual genetic profiles through our Precision Medicine Alliance LLC. Currently, physicians can study de-identified similar cases and treatment plans to provide cancer patients with a more targeted treatment plan, and the Alliance will grow to include cardiovascular conditions, polypharmacy treatments, and neonatal genetics.
We are using digital technology to improve patient outcomes by empowering patients to self-manage their condition. Our asthma-management program uses digital sensors and wireless technology to help predict an attack, which helps our patients avoid emergency department visits and hospitalizations.
CommonSpirit is championing violence prevention through education, public policy, advocacy, shareholder advocacy, and community-based initiatives. Working with partners across the nation, we are helping to build a culture of nonviolence in our communities.
