Our Mission

Part of this worldwide network, Adventist Health System was founded in 1973 to support and strengthen the Seventh-day Adventist health care organizations in the Southern and Southwestern regions of the United States. Today it is a national leader in quality, safety and patient satisfaction, comprised of 46 hospital campuses and nearly 77,000 employees.

Although separated by geography, each of our facilities is united by the mission of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ. Today we continue the tradition of whole-person care by practicing and sharing CREATION Health, a blueprint for living a healthy, happy life based on the principles given in the Bible’s creation story: Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust, Interpersonal relationships, Outlook and Nutrition.

We provide comprehensive benefits, training and advancement opportunities. We care for our employees as well as we care for our patients.
