Our Catholic Identity

Founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace in 1890, PeaceHealth is a Catholic-sponsored health ministry serving communities in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon. 

Our health ministry continues the healing mission of Jesus Christ by valuing the human dignity and worth of each person; by understanding people as social beings who are a unity of mind, body, and spirit; by promoting a just distribution of health and health care resources within our society; by recognizing that we have a special obligation to the poor, the underserved, and the most vulnerable; and, by working together with all people of good will to promote the common good.
