The Sisters of St. Joseph’s Hamilton created a culture and commitment to excellence in service and clinical care that touches every member of our team across the St. Joseph’s Health System (SJHS).

Regardless of faith or culture, the one characteristic our people share is a deep belief in the values our founders instilled in our organization.

It is an honour to serve and, in particular, to ensure that those most vulnerable and marginalized have access to compassionate and high-quality care.

We are reminded of this phenomenal legacy when living the Mission every day through compassionate care, faith, and discovery.

Our member organizations are known for genuine compassion and caring, both locally and around the world.

Each of the organizations offers services according to their strengths, from acute care, long-term care, and community care, to rehabilitation, hospice, community outreach, and mental health.

We are blessed to have a committed team of spiritual care leaders across the St. Joseph’s Health System. They live the legacy every day and embrace the mission and values of the Sisters of St. Joseph’s.
