Kevin E. Lofton
CEO, Catholic Health Initiatives

We are pleased to share that Dignity Health and Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) are combining to create a new, nonprofit Catholic health system focused on creating healthier communities.

Both CHI and Dignity Health believe that everyone deserves access to quality, affordable health care. By combining our complementary resources and capabilities, we will create a stronger system to increase investment in critical access areas to advance quality of care and access across 28 states, while ensuring our caregivers are positioned to succeed within the evolving health care field.

This combination enables us to expand access to outpatient and virtual care settings, share clinical advancements, and provide the people and communities we serve with access to leading technologies, innovation, and some of the best and brightest caregivers in the U.S.

This is a significant moment for health care, for our health ministries, and for the people and communities we proudly serve. We are excited about all that the future holds, and look forward to you joining us on this journey. This site provides information to address questions you may have about the combination and what it means for you and your community. We look forward to serving you in the future.
