Pro-Life Healthcare

 

 

Consistent with the long history of Catholic healthcare, we affirm the positive pro-life message of the Church.

We care for the needy, support marital chastity, encourage the use of Natural Family Planning, and provide compassionate hospice care at the end of natural life. We do not provide or refer for contraception, abortion, sterilization, or euthanasia.
