Shared Mission. Exceptional Care. Unified Voice.

Catholic Health East and Trinity Health joined together as of May 1, to create one of the nation’s largest Catholic health care systems.

The consolidation of CHE and Trinity Health creates a health system that serves people in 21 states from coast to coast with 82 hospitals, 89 continuing care facilities and home health and hospice programs that provide nearly 2.8 million visits annually. More than 87,000 employees, including 4,100 employed physicians, will provide care in the new system. The new system will have annual operating revenues of about $13.3 billion and assets of about $19.3 billion, and will return almost $1 billion to its communities annually in the form of charity care and other programs.
