Vision Statement of CHA-MN

Catholic Health Association of Minnesota (CHA-MN) is a state association of Catholic health providers joined together to support access to health care and to promote, strengthen and fulfill the healing mission of the Church.

CHA-MN, in concert with the vision enunciated by Catholic Health Association of the United States strives to be a “vibrant presence in enhancing the health of communities and access to quality care for everyone, with special attention to those who are underserved and most vulnerable.”

CHA-MN seeks to achieve this vision through strategies that are patterned on Catholic Social Teaching inspired by Biblical justice and the healing ministry of Christ:  promote and defend human dignity, care for poor and vulnerable persons, act on behalf of justice, attend to the whole person, promote the common good, steward resources, and act in communion with the church


Believing in the worth and dignity of the human person made in the image and likeness of God, the Catholic Health Association-Minnesota assists its members to fulfill the healing mission of the Church.
