Mission, Vision and History
To extend Christian ministry by caring for the whole person—body, mind and spirit—and by working with others to improve health and quality of life in our communities.
We believe that to put our mission into practice, we must provide the best possible care to all our patients. That means following proven, standardized practices throughout the system, focusing on evidence-based medicine and tracking and reporting outcomes. We work to nurture a culture of safety and expect to rank at the top of our class in providing an exceptional patient experience and successful treatment.
We believe that every interaction—whether it involves Covenant staff, our patients or their families—is a sacred encounter. We come together to provide compassionate care and contribute to the overall good health of the people we serve. We believe that each of the communities we serve should be among the healthiest in the United States, and we are committed to improving access to care.
Covenant Health is a member of St. Joseph Health, one of the most successful not-for-profit health systems in the United States. It was founded in 1998 through the merger of two of Lubbock’s most venerable health care facilities, St. Mary of the Plains Hospital and Lubbock Methodist Hospital System. The Covenant Foundation is a merger of the two hospitals’ foundation organizations.
