The place to work

where great work is done.

Professional Development

CHRISTUS Health is committed to supporting the development needs of CHRISTUS leaders and Associates in order to help them realize a greater degree of personal and professional achievement and satisfaction. Associates who are committed to learning and professional development enhance our organization and are better able to support CHRISTUS Health's Journey to Excellence.

CHRISTUS Academy

This annual, year-long program is dedicated to identifying and cultivating CHRISTUS' emerging leaders. Each year, thirty participants are chosen to complete core studies in finance, governance, strategy and business practices. They interact with senior executives, industry experts, academics and practitioners in CHRISTUS regions. Working together, they take their learning and experience and produce relevant, actionable recommendations on important operational issues.

CHRISTUS Center for Management Excellence (CCME)

Wanting to provide leadership development for greater numbers of our frontline managers, supervisors and directors, we founded CCME as a week-long program that includes sessions on healthcare finance, interpersonal relations, and management tips and tools. The response has been remarkable with more than 90 percent of participants rating the program excellent, and with an increased understanding of the mission combined with the opportunity to focus on effective leadership - we are making a difference.

Mentorship Program

Through our mentorship program we have found that it is an excellent way to promote understanding and diversity. Mentors and mentees drawn from different backgrounds learn from each other. Focused attention and guidance leads to Associates who are increasingly proactive in pursuing development opportunities and increasingly committed to our mission.

Leadership Enrichment

An important element of our Catholic heritage is the ability to reflect and consider what it means to be an Associate in a Catholic, faith-based organization. At CHRISTUS Health, work is a ministry and leadership a calling, and the Leadership Enrichment program provides a solid foundation for understanding and advancing our health care ministry while incorporating spirituality into inspiring leadership. Our leaders are role models within our organization, helping others to develop their God-given talents and actively contribute to the realization of a vibrant, spiritually-based organization.
