In 1996, AdventHealth and CommonSpirit hospitals in Colorado formed Centura Health, a faith-based, nonprofit health care network designed to manage and strengthen their hospitals and services.
Adventists establish hospitals that place an emphasis on holistic care and wellness promotion. Catholics are well-known for their tradition of caring for the poor. Both sponsors are inclusive in their values with an understanding of the vital role that all types of spirituality can play in health care.
Founded in 1973 to support and strengthen Seventh-day Adventist health care organizations in the southern and southwestern regions of the United States, AdventHealth is the largest nonprofit Protestant health care provider in the nation and one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health systems. AdventHealth supports 45 hospitals and employs nearly 43,000 individuals, serving nearly four million consumers each year.
CommonSpirit was created by the alignment of Catholic Health Initiatives and Dignity Health as a single ministry in early 2019. CommonSpirit’s commitment to serve the common good is delivered through the dedicated work of thousands of physicians, advanced practice clinicians, nurses, and staff; through clinical excellence delivered across a system of 137 hospitals and more than 1,000 care centers serving 21 states; and through more than $4 billion annually in charity care, community benefits, and government program services.
