"Today, health care equity is a popular buzz-phrase. Well, to me, and to Catholic Health, it's our mission. It means delivering the right care, in the right place, at the right time."

A Message From Dr. Patrick O’Shaughnessy

My hope is that by sharing my insights and experiences, I can help increase awareness about the challenges facing our nation’s health, as well as solutions.
I believe health care is not only about providing state-of-the-art disease care, but also prevention and helping folks live healthier lives. When you marry those together, you have a powerful way to improve the overall health of the population. 
My personal mission statement is to be a guiding force for healing in our little corner of the world. That’s why I became a physician. And my personal mission aligns with Catholic Health’s mission, which is to extend Christ’s healing mission to the community.
I invite you to sign up for updates and join me in raising awareness so that together we can solve health care’s largest challenges.

In good health,

Patrick O’Shaughnessy, DO, MBA

Catholic Health President & Chief Executive Officer
