We are committed to supporting our team members by providing access to services and programs to help with work life balance.

Every employee is responsible for getting to and from work and meeting expected work timeframes.

Our Heritage and Foundational Resources
Catholic social teaching is a tradition composed of documents of the Catholic Church on social, political, economic and environmental issues concerned with protecting the dignity and well-being of all persons; promoting just relations within societies; and informing ethical choices that serve in the preservation of the natural world. The critical characteristics of Catholic social teaching include belief in the inherent dignity of the human person, who is both sacred and social. Belief in individual dignity and in community form the foundation of all Catholic social teaching.
Ethical and Religious Directives: "Catholic health care ministry is rooted in a commitment to promote and defend human dignity; this is the foundation of its concern to respect the sacredness of every human life" (The Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services - Part 1)
Flowing from that, as a Catholic institution we are guided by the Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services. "The purpose of these Ethical and Religious Directives is then two-fold:
First, to reaffirm the ethical standards of behavior in health care that flow from the Church's teaching about the dignity of the human person;
Second, to provide authoritative guidance on certain moral issues that face Catholic health care today." (The Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services - Preamble)
Redeemer Health food programs provide food assistance for those in need in the community as well as employees. Service and assistance is provided with compassion and respect. Employees are encouraged to participate in collection of food items and monetary donations year-round to support the efforts of the food assistance programs.
