Message from the CEO

On behalf of the Sisters of Mercy, the Board of Trustees and the entire Holy Cross community, I welcome you to the Holy Cross network.

Since 1955, Holy Cross Hospital has been a transforming, healing presence in our community. Having spent my entire career at Holy Cross, I can attest to this. Serving in the spirit of the Sisters of Mercy, we are more than a community hospital; we are a healthcare ministry with multiple outpatient facilities in Broward and Palm Beach counties, all driven to serve you.  Our vision is to be your trusted health partner for life – by providing exceptional care, preventive medicine and education through sacred encounters with those we come in contact.

As South Florida’s only non-profit Catholic hospital, we know the value of reinvesting in our facilities and our people to better meet your needs. We continually upgrade our campus, are stewards of our environment through green initiatives, and provide outstanding healthcare while serving our neighbors with genuine care and compassion. We believe in partnering with you to optimize your health.

Holy Cross attracts the best nurses and fosters an environment where all people are welcomed, valued and celebrated. Our Spiritual Care Team is on call 24 hours, ever ready to offer solace or guidance when you need it.  Further elevating the quality of care provided to our patients, we are pleased to share that Holy Cross Hospital is now an academic medical center through the University of Miami Internal Medicine Residency Program at Holy Cross Hospital.    

Holy Cross’ many firsts are varied – from our awards and recognitions to our leading-edge technology. However, above all, we value the safety and dignity of our patients. Thank you for believing in Holy Cross Hospital and for entrusting us with your care.
