This past Saturday, our Board of Directors approved a new mission statement. Our former statement had been written to represent the services offered by all of the facilities staffed by the Franciscan Sisters from Hankinson. The new one is more reflective of the special work done here at St. Anne’s as a long-term care facility. The new mission statement reads:
Our mission at St. Anne’s is to provide a safe, caring, and family-like home for our residents. Inspired by St. Francis, we strive to serve each person who comes to us as we would Christ. We welcome those who come to us from various backgrounds, treating them with love and dignity while providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
St. Anne’s strives to embody the gospel message in accord with the “Ethical and Religious Directives for Catholic Health Care Services” given by the U.S. Council of Catholic Bishops.
