Our Mission - Why We Exist

To extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.


Our Core Values - What We Believe In

  1. Dignity: Respect for the worth every person, recognition and commitment to the value of diverse individuals and perspectives, and special concern for the poor and underserved. 
  2. Integrity: Honesty, justice, and consistency in all relationships.
  3. Excellence: High standards of service and performance.
  4. Compassion: Service in a spirit of empathy, love, and concern.
  5. Stewardship: Wise and just use of talents and resources in a collaborative manner. 


Our Vision - What We Are Striving to Do. 

CHRISTUS HEALTH, a Catholic health ministry, will be a leader, a partner, and an advocate the creation of innovative health and wellness solutions that improve the lives of individuals and communities so that all may experience God's healing presence and love. 


Our Name and Symbol - Who We Are

CHRISTUS is Latin for "Christ," and proclaims publicly the core of our mission. Our name choice also recognizes the heritage of our two congregational sponsors, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word in Houston and San Antonio. Jesus Christ is the Incarnate Word, the Word of God made flesh. It is, therefore, only fitting that it is in another form of His name that our health ministries are called together. 

Our symbols reflects the healing ministry of Jesus Christ— a combination of a medical cross and a religious cross. The flowing banner on the cross is a common symbol of the risen Christ, while the royal purple signifies Christ. The flowing banner also conveys a sense of motion as we move forward into a new era of service to our communities.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The only improvement I would recommend would be giving sitters a general department so we may have a manager specifically for our department only.

What I like about the company

My manager is always aware of what happens and always sets up meetings to see how we are doing and if we have any concerns or complaints. The overall staff in the hospital is also supportive and attentive when I need anything for myself or the patient. The overall response when an insistent occurs is very fast. I feel safe in any environment I am placed with the patient. But the best part is the service provided to not just the patient but family members also is phenomenal.

What I dislike about the company

I do not dissaprove of any parts.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Involve clinical staff in decision-making process. Listen to staff feedback and concerns and address the issues raised. Offer competitive pay to existing employees—not just new ones. Verbally appreciate and recognize employee efforts. We need unit-specific educators to keep us updated on evidence-based practices applicable to our unit.

What I like about the company

Our equipment is up-to-date. My managers have worked with me on scheduling so I can continue my education.

What I dislike about the company

Clinical personnel should be INCLUDED in the decision-making process, especially when the decision impacts their practice.
The focus should shift back to patient safety and staff satisfaction and away from ‘the biggest bang for the buck.’
Incentives and rewards should be given to faithful and loyal employees, and used to encourage employees to stay instead of offering sign-on bonuses.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The culture was fantastic..on paper. Upper management seemed so removed with what was actually happening. The corporate office is also very removed from the hospital locations which caused employees to be desensitized to true patient care. The health insurance could have been better. Every year less is covered.

What I like about the company

On site gym. Good location. Nice co workers. Nice break areas with prayer room, private phone rooms, dedicated space for breast feeding moms. On site chapel.

What I dislike about the company

Real work life balance. Listen to employees concerns about their managers before situations blow up. Pay attention to the huge employee turnovers and absenteeism. Enforce company policies fairly and uniformly.
