Mission Statement

Our Mission at St. Joseph's Hospital
St. Joseph's Hospital, a Catholic health facility, is a voluntary not-for-profit community general hospital founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Rochester in cooperation with the physicians and citizens of Elmira, NY. The St. Joseph's Hospital community, by maintaining a deep respect for the dignity of each person, strives to heal, as Jesus did, in mind, body and spirit, all who come to us.
St. Joseph's Hospital is committed to use its resources to provide the highest quality care. The Hospital ministers to inpatients and outpatients, serving as a primary care and specialty referral center for people from all faiths living in Chemung County and the surrounding counties of New York and Pennsylvania.

In keeping with the spirit of the Mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph, the Hospital is committed to respond to the changing health and welfare needs of the community. St. Joseph's keeps abreast of the latest advances in medical
technologies and provides education for staff, patients, and the community.

The Hospital works with other health care providers and agencies to meet regional health care needs.
