Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare is committed to living out the healing ministry of the Judeo-Christian tradition by providing exceptional and compassionate health care services that promote the dignity and well being of the people we serve.
Our health ministries will be recognized in each community we serve for superior and compassionate patient service, clinical excellence, for being the healthcare employer of choice and the preferred partner of physicians.
Our Values, which flow from our Mission, the Catholic tradition of the Wheaton Franciscans and the community service heritage of Schoitz Health Resources, must have meaning for every one of us. Through them, we put into practice the healing ministry of Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare.

We hope these behaviors will influence, for the better, every person whose life we touch.

EXCELLENCE: We value superior performance in our work and service.
