History

The Catholic Health Association of Saskatchewan (CHAS) was formed in 1943 to be a voice for Catholic hospitals and long-term care facilities, and to protect and promote Catholic health care in Saskatchewan .

Catholic health care is evolving as we face the increasing use of technology and the decreasing numbers of Sisters in ministry in our facilities. CHAS continues to serve the needs of today by offering leadership, education and resources in ethics, mission, spiritual care and social justice.

Our mission has broadened to engage the parishes and public in the important ministry of Catholic health care.
