The Spirit of Health
Our Spirit of Health promise is the embodiment of PeaceHealth.
Everything we do is in service to a higher purpose: to work with and help our neighbors live healthier, happier lives
We take care of the needs of people, we don’t simply treat patients. We put people at the center, enabling them to be their best, and providing personalized, compassionate care when they are not. We make them feel welcome, comfortable, and safe. We are neighbors, caring for and loving one another, for the betterment of all.
Caring for those in our community is not new to PeaceHealth; it’s been in practice since the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace arrived in Fairhaven, Washington to serve the needs of the loggers, mill workers, fishermen and their families. They knew strong, healthy communities benefit individuals and society, and that social and economic factors can make some community members especially vulnerable. The Sisters believed they had a responsibility to care for them, and that ultimately, healthier communities enable all of us to rise to a better life.
This philosophy inspires us today and guides us toward the future.
