Mission, Vision, and Values


Community Healthcare System is committed to provide the highest quality care in the most cost-efficient manner, respecting the dignity of the individual, providing for the well being of the community and serving the needs of all people, including the poor and disadvantaged. 


Community Healthcare System is one medical provider organized across three hospital campuses. It links three Indiana hospitals - Community Hospital in Munster; St. Catherine Hospital in East Chicago; and St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart - and many outpatient clinics and physician offices. The system is dedicated to maintain the Catholic tradition of St. Catherine Hospital and St. Mary Medical Center as well as the non-sectarian foundation of Community Hospital. Community Healthcare System will become the prominent, integrated healthcare system in Northwest Indiana. Through integration, the system will capitalize on opportunities to increase overall growth, improve operating efficiency, and realize capital to better serve our patients, physicians, and employees.


We value the dignity of human life, which is sacred and deserving of respect and fairness throughout its stages of existence.

Compassionate Care
We value compassionate care, treating those we serve and one another with professionalism, concern and kindness, exceeding expectations.

We value meeting the vital responsibilities in the community we serve, and take a leadership role in enhancing the quality of life and health, striving to reduce the incidence of illness through clinical services, education and prevention.

We value quality and strive for excellence in all we do, working together collaboratively as the power of our combined efforts exceeds what each of us can accomplish alone.

We value trustworthy stewardship and adherence to the highest ethical standards that justify public trust and protect what is of value to the system - its human resources, material and financial assets.
