The CHRISTUS Legacy Answering the Call

In 1999, two historic Catholic congregations formed CHRISTUS Health to create a unique purpose in the modern health care market - to take better care of people. As we've welcomed a third sponsoring congregation, Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, we've continued the mission to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.
