The Diocesan Healthcare Committee exists to promote Christ’s vision of care through the Church’s ministry of Catholic healthcare under the guidance of the Bishop of the Diocese.  This committee normally meets on the first Tuesday of February, April, and August to discuss and review current medical and ethical issues within its diocesan healthcare institutions and to support the work and ministry of Catholic healthcare throughout the diocese.  It is comprised of physicians, priests, pastoral care staff members, ethicists, and administrative representatives.

It has also been hosting an Annual Diocesan Healthcare Day in the fall since 2003. For more information about this upcoming event, click here.
