COVID-19 Ways To Help

In these uncertain and rapidly changing times, St. Joseph Hospital remains firmly committed to the health and well-being of our patients, our staff and the community.  In 1912, the Sisters of St. Joseph traveled to California to establish an educational ministry and in 1918 an influenza epidemic transitioned their focus from education to healthcare for our dear neighbor by founding St. Joseph Hospital in Orange in 1929.  Today, in the spirit and mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, we are still caring for the dear neighbor and COVID-19 is unchartered water.  Together, we will weather this storm.

Here is a resource to get answers to many of your Coronavirus questions:
