Our Mission, Vision and Values

Our mission, vision and values have set the bases for our Congregation since Sisters Hospitallers was founded in 1881.

Every day since, we have kept this commitment to hospitality through the work we carry out in our centres and hospitals worldwide. Likewise, we have turned the passion to help others into our cause, caring for those that need it the most.

As a result, Sisters Hospitallers today counts on more than 1.200 sisters and 8.700 co-workers. In other words, thousands of people that make it possible to keep growing and reaching more people in need.

Our mission

Our mission expresses the charisma of Hospitality. That is, to assist and care for the mentally ill, physically disabled and other related sicknesses. Most importantly,  to give special preference for the poorest and most marginalized.


We strive to help shape a world where the sick and the elderly are no longer marginalised. Moreover, where they finally receive the respect and care they need, through the hospitality spirit.


In the same vein, our core value is Hospitality. Above all, it drives our daily work and guides the service we provide in all our centres around the world.

We consider hospitaller values as a key element of our Institution’s identity. In other words, they are present in our cause and act as the distinctive feature of our work.

All our values may be summarized in a single one: HOSPITALITY. That is our human value in the social and health sphere.

  • Sensitivity for the excluded
  • Service to the sick and needy
  • Liberating welcome
  • Holistic health
  • Professional quality
  • Humanity in care
  • Ethical intervention
  • Historical awareness.
