St. Rita's Medical Center is dedicated to continuing the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. For 92 years St. Rita's has been steadfast in its mission of caring for the poor, the elderly and the vulnerable members of the community and to improving the health of the many communities we serve. The Medical Center continually strives to ensure all residents of West Central Ohio have access to advanced medical technology and quality care.
Last year, St. Rita's contributed $46 million in donated medical care and services to the community. For those residents who have limited incomes, no health insurance or family doctor, St. Rita's provided basic health care through the MED-CARE Health Clinic. Doctors and nurses ensure families receive regular checkups, screenings and life-saving medications. In Lima's at-risk neighborhoods, registered nurses are going door-to-door through the Neighborhood Nursing Program. They link people of all ages to the medical care they need, help them manage chronic health conditions and ensure children receive the immunizations they need. And more than 81,000 residents in West Central Ohio phoned St. Rita's Call A Nurse service last year receiving valuable health information 24-hours a day. These are just a few examples of St. Rita's mission in action.
