“As a faith based healthcare ministry, Advocate Health Care is committed to caring for the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of those whom we are called to serve. I continue to be inspired by the number of associates throughout Advocate who see their work not as a job, but as a true calling to serve God’s people.
Everything from the care we provide to the decisions we make are grounded in our mission, values and philosophy as we seek to build lifelong relationships with individuals, families and communities.”
