Inspired by the healing ministry of Jesus Christ and the principles of Catholic social teaching, we at Presence Health are called to advocate for the common good and for a shared vision of healing and wholeness. We rely on the rich traditions of our faith to guide us in assessing legislation and its impact on health and wellness, especially for the marginalized, vulnerable and underserved.

Presence Health's commitment to advocacy requires us to be active at the local, state and national level where health care policy decisions are made. Our various legislative bodies continually make decisions that impact health care coverage, financing and delivery in our communities. Our elected representatives may not know the impact of their decisions on the people we serve unless we tell them.

In this section you can follow matters important to our health system and to our work toward social justice. We encourage you to join us as we work to provide care and support for all of our neighbors.
