Since May of 2011, Trinity Hospital Twin City has been a Catholic not-for-profit health care facility that was originally sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania, Ohio as part of Sylvania Franciscan Health. On November 1, 2014, the hospital obtained a new sponsor when Sylvania Franciscan Health joined Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI, the second largest Catholic healthcare organization in the U.S.).

With operations in 19 states encompassing more than 102 hospitals, 30 critical access hospitals, 12 clinically integrated networks and ten insurance plans, CHI serves over 12 million individuals annually through its staff of more than 95,000 employees. As part of Catholic Health Initiatives, we at Trinity Hospital Twin City are guided by the Mission and Values as set forth by our sponsors, committed to delivering high quality healthcare services. The core values of reverence, integrity, compassion, and excellence are at the heart of our mission. We are committed to continue the compassionate healing mission of Jesus who, by His example, cared for people who came to Him with a physical, spiritual, and/or mental ailment.

Sr. Nancy Ferguson, a Sister of St. Francis, serves as Director of Mission Integration. In this role, she provides leadership in promoting the hospital’s mission and core values. She also helps the staff understand and integrate the elements of Catholic identity into organizational operations. The elements of Catholic identity include respect for the human dignity of the person, holistic care, care for the poor and vulnerable, concern for the common good, promotion of justice, stewardship of resources and unity of purpose with the Catholic Church.

The mission, core values and elements of Catholic identity help to shape and support the strategic goals of the organization.
