The Via Christi Health logo is a visual expression of our mission and values
Inspired by the Gospel and our Catholic tradition, we serve as a healing presence with special concern for our neighbors who are vulnerable.
Our logo evokes the personality of Via Christi. It is gracious (grace-full) and spirited. It is unifying as the three shapes, which call to mind our core values, move together and upward to form a cross. The cross reminds us of our name - Via Christi - and our mission to serve in the Way of Christ. The overall design is alive in its color and dynamic movement, signifying our readiness to respond to the needs of changing times. The design's open space reflects our openness to the movement of God's Spirit, and our reaching out to our neighbors to bring Christ's healing presence.
Our Core Values
Human Dignity - We recognize and respect the sacredness of each person.
The blue shape [on the lower right] reflects our rootedness in the Gospel and our commitment to human dignity. The shape, both rooted and bending forward, calls to mind that we are created by God and bow in recognition of the sacredness of each person. The blue color symbolizes the ever-fresh call to serve others. Rooted in the Gospel, we serve with particular concern for those who are vulnerable.
Stewardship - We responsibly care for all resources entrusted to us.
The dark green shape [on the left] calls to mind the resources -- human, financial, and material -- entrusted to us. The dark green color symbolizes God's creation. All that we are and have is given to us as a gift. In gratitude, we act as responsible stewards. The smallest of the three shapes reminds us to use our limited resources with care.
Excellence - We extend ourselves in outstanding service.
The lighter green shape [at the top] reaches upward, illustrating our commitment to extend ourselves in outstanding service. Excellence is achieved both through human interactions and technical advances. The light (bright) green color symbolizes our commitment to outstanding service, bringing about healing and hope.
