Overview

CommonSpirit Health was formed by the alignment of Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) and Dignity Health. With more than 700 care sites across the U.S. & from clinics and hospitals to home-based care and virtual care services CommonSpirit is accessible to nearly one out of every four U.S. residents. Our world needs compassion like never before. Our communities need caring and our families need protection. With our combined resources CommonSpirit is committed to building healthy communities advocating for those who are poor and vulnerable and innovating how and where healing can happen both inside our hospitals and out in the community.

 

CHI St. Vincent Infirmary, now part of CommonSpirit Health formed between Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) and Dignity Health in early 2019, is proud to be the first hospital in Arkansas to achieve Magnet designation and our resignation for our continued commitment to nursing excellence and patient care. 

Many of our co-workers call CHI St. Vincent their home and their team family. As we look forward, we have established an empowering environment for CHI St. Vincent co-workers where professional development is encouraged and supported.
