1 DIGNITY HEALTH STANDARDS for MISSION INTEGRATION

2 Dear Dignity Health Colleague: Mission Integration is all of the processes, programs and relationships that express a spirit that is deeply woven into the fiber of organizations; a spirit that is expressed in a deep commitment and sense of purpose; rooted in the values and traditions of the organization; and evident in a special spirit that is part of the culture. It is what draws people to the organization. We thank you for your continued leadership and commitment to Dignity Health s mission and values. You and your local leadership have our personal support and the support of senior staff and system mission leaders. The Dignity Health Standards for Mission Integration reflect the future we, as a system, are aspiring to realize. The Standards provide us with a framework to identify, measure and improve the ways in which the mission of our health care ministry is carried out. They also are a tool that will help us assess how our values are being lived out in the day-to-day operations of our organization. Each facility is expected to establish and support an overall mission integration process, supported by an annual plan. We invite you to join us in a renewed commitment to the vision and values of Dignity Health and to our mission of advancing the healing ministry of Jesus. Lloyd H. Dean President /CEO Bernita McTernan Executive Vice President, Sponsorship, Mission Integrity and Philanthropy
