Our core Values:
In 1996, Advent Health and CommonSpirit Health formed Centura Health, a Christian, not-for-profit health system whose incredible people are on a mission to build whole person care and flourishing communities.
Our legacy demonstrates the importance of diversity in thought, word, and action as our founders pursued equality and justice especially for the outsiders, the strangers, the lonely, and the oppressed. Today, it is our turn to carry that same intentionality forward as we continue to walk on our journey of ensuring diversity and inclusivity, and as we drive change in our communities.
Centura Health’s work on diversity and inclusion includes a Social Justice Framework that entails, not only work that has begun, but work that will begin and carry into the future, impressing on the importance of action in this space.

- Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday as a paid holiday which will serve as an annual day of prayer, reflection, and dialogue at Centura Health (with programming and education around cultural and ethnic holidays).
- Establish implementation plan with timeline, metrics, and communication including an annual progress update to governance, associates, and physicians.
