"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.
Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Justice -- one of the four core values of St. Joseph Hospital -- calls us to advocate for systems and structures that are attuned to the needs of the vulnerable and disadvantaged and that provide a sense of community among all persons. St. Joseph Hospital believes one of the ways we can best improve the health of people living within our communities is to advocate for them. This is a key way in which we can all contribute to our mission to improve the health and quality of life for people in our communities.
Advocacy Priorities include:
- Support Federal healthcare reform and expanded access to healthcare.
- Support Federal legislation increasing the number of qualified healthcare workers.
- Protect State budget funding for the healthcare safety net.
- Provide access to healthcare for all children
Decisions in Sacramento or Washington DC can greatly affect the delivery of hospital services. We greatly encourage participation at the grassroots level.
