					                           Catholic Health Care in Missouri
                                       A Commitment to Serve
Catholic health care is an important element of the health care delivery system that people in
Missouri rely on every day. Catholic hospitals and nursing facilities provide a range of services
to Missouri citizens, including inpatient and outpatient care, home health, skilled nursing,
hospice, low-income housing, and assisted living facilities.

Catholic Health Association facilities in Missouri comprise: 1

   13 acute care hospitals
   10 nursing facilities
   2 other Catholic-sponsored service organizations including hospice, home health, assisted
    living, and senior housing.

Our Mission to Care

Catholic health care systems have a long history of serving those in need and speaking for those
whose voices often go unheard. In the Catholic health ministry we are committed to providing
quality health care to all people in our communities and to using the resources we have to the
greatest community benefit.

Accordingly, we are committed to serving those who have the least access to health care services
and who are the most in need. Currently in this country there are approximately 47 million
uninsured. In Missouri alone there are 719,914 uninsured.2

Serving the Vulnerable Populations and Our Nation’s Seniors 3

Without Medicaid or Medicare, millions of low-income children, adults, the elderly, and the
disabled would not be able to afford health care.

Our hospitals in Missouri provided inpatient care to 64,547 Medicare beneficiaries and to 20,342
Medicaid beneficiaries in 2006. In 2006, Medicare accounted for approximately 45 percent of
those we served, while Medicaid accounted for 14 percent.

A Major Employer

Catholic health care provides a significant portion of the jobs in Missouri. Collectively, as many
as 20,941 citizens of Missouri are employed by our hospitals in the Catholic health ministry.
