Like every organization, we look to numbers
to give us a tangible picture of our progress
and confirm we are on the right path to
meeting and exceeding far-reaching health
care needs. In the last 18 months, we've seen a
substantial amount of growth. As we expanded
domestically and internationally, we increased
our assets by $1.7 billion and added 10,000
Associates for a total of 45,000 – 15,000 of whom
are internationally based.
As exciting and promising as these figures are,
we all know that CHRISTUS is about something
far more important than numbers – and that is
the people we are here to serve. Our growth
is focused on each community touched by
our ministry, so that more and more can be
embraced by God's healing presence and love.
We welcome you to review this publication
to see that as we continue to lead CHRISTUS
Health, our primary focus will always be on our
human connection, no matter how large we get.
We remain committed to the immeasurable
importance of our patients and their high-quality
care, and the need to reach them wherever they
We will continue to ensure we are good stewards of
our resources, keeping focus on the greater good
of everyone we serve in both our deep-rooted and
our brand-new communities. In all of these areas,
we will continue to move forward in our three
strategic directions of growth, population health,
and operational excellence and quality.
Despite complex and ever-changing challenges in
both U.S. and international health care, CHRISTUS
is now stronger and more inspired than ever to
take on these challenges. With God's blessing, we
will further develop our ministry and work towards
extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ to
more people than ever before.
