Catholic Healthcare West is Now Dignity Health

San Francisco-based Catholic Healthcare West is no longer an official ministry of the Catholic Church and is now operating as Dignity Health, according to a system news release.

Catholic hospitals within the system will remain non-profit and adhere to religious directives, but the system's 15 non-religious hospitals will adhere to the system's Statement of Common Values. Dignity's 25 Catholic hospitals will be directly sponsored by their founding congregations.

The restructuring, which comes after several years of discussions, is meant to let the system grow nationally while preserving the identity of both religious and non-religious hospitals. The system now anticipates expanded partnerships with Catholic and non-Catholic hospitals.
