Mission at a Glance


Mission Hospital was formed when St. Joseph's Hospital and Memorial Mission Medical Center started an organizational partnership in 1996.  This partnership was followed by a full merger on October 27, 1998, when St. Joseph's Hospital was purchased from the Sisters of Mercy by Memorial Mission Medical Center.  Today these hospitals are part of the Mission Health System.
