the power of a belief system

It's not uncommon for an organization to have a mission statement. Advocate Health Care's mission, values and philosophy are grounded in more than 100 years of caring for individuals, families and communities.

Advocate Health Care is so uniquely committed to our mission, values and philosophy that we have a dedicated Office for Mission and Spiritual Care. One of the functions of this office is to ensure that the mission, values and philosophy are understood and integrated into all aspects of our health care ministry.

Mission
The mission of Advocate Health Care is to serve the health needs of individuals, families and communities through a wholistic philosophy rooted in our fundamental understanding of human beings as created in the image of God.

Values
Advocate exists to serve.  The core values of compassion, equality, excellence, partnership and stewardship guide our actions as we work together to provide health services to others in our communities.

Philosophy
The care we provide is wholistic.  This philosophy means we understand people have physical, emotional and spiritual needs and their relations to God, themselves, their families and society are vital to health and healing.  Finally, we believe all people are created in the image of God.  All human beings live under God's care and must be treated with dignity and respect.
