Reflections on our Practice

To support our strategic plan, Covenant Health has developed a series of Theological Reflections to clearly anchor our work in the theological traditions that permeate our work as a Catholic health care organization.
 
We invite you to view these documents to advance your understanding of why Covenant Health is committed to serving these vulnerable populations, and in whose name we serve. Key messages found within these documents can be used to prepare your own speaking notes, project charters, briefs, or business case proposals to support your work in our strategies, or even to use for reflections at the beginning of meetings. 
 
We are proud of our rich theological tradition and the legacy entrusted by our founding Sisters to carry on the healing ministry of Jesus. We hope these documents invite you to personally reflect on your own work, and your invaluable contributions in advancing our mission at Covenant Health.
 
A Theological Reflection in Support of Covenant Health/Catholic Social Services Joint Addiction and Mental Health Strategy
In the March-April 2013 issue of Health Progress, The Catholic Health Association of the United States published a theological reflection on mental health by Gordon Self, Covenant Health's VP, Mission, Ethics and Spirituality. In the theological reflection—"The Mentally Ill as Neighbor: Seeing the Christ Who Dwells Within"—Dr. Self reflects on the moral and theological dimensions of care, noting that hidden biases may interfere with giving the best care to persons with challenging mental health needs and addictions. Read the full theological reflection on the Health Progress website.
