History of CHRISTUS Health Foundation

In 1866, Bishop Claude Marie Dubuis turned to his native France to seek help for those who were suffering, and issued a call for Religious Sisters to immigrate to Texas to help care for the sick and infirm in the name of Jesus Christ. The Sisters who answered Bishop Dubuis’ call did not speak the English language and had to leave behind everything familiar to them. It was a bold new beginning for these pioneering Sisters. They had faith, they had a mission, and they had a vision. Today, CHRISTUS Health is called to carry on this mission. Rooted in faith and committed to a journey together, we are building on the progress we have made since our inception as a healing ministry.

We are blessed with an opportunity to lead the movement that is changing how Catholic health care is delivered in the U.S. and internationally, through our strategic Directions to Excellence: Business Literacy, Clinical Quality, Service Quality and Community Value, as well as our progress in the areas of philanthropy and advocacy. Through our continued focus on excellence, we are embracing CHRISTUS’ sacred name and creating a culture in which our mission and core values are truly exemplified, ensuring that the lives of those we serve are sustained and strengthened by the care we provide.
