Why Dignity Health - St. Joseph’s Destination Medicine?

Dignity Health’s Destination Medicine program was founded on the belief that all people deserve quality medical care, regardless of their background or circumstances. Our commitment to that belief means we utilize the most advanced medical technology. It means we offer clinical expertise through our exceptional team of doctors and nurses. And it means doing this with compassion—the type of compassion that seeks ways to deliver high-quality care at the lowest possible cost, so it’s accessible to everyone no matter where they’re from or what health challenges they are facing. All of the positive attributes associated with our approach and our mission can be summed up in two words: Hello humankindness. You’ll see it in text. You’ll hear it spoken. And you’ll feel it in the way we care for you.

Every one of our physicians, nurses, and therapists bring their own blend of experience, dedication, and clinical expertise to maintain our position at the forefront of modern medicine and ensure that each of our patients receives the best treatment for the best outcome. No two lives are alike and no two patients are alike. So we take a personalized, holistic approach to customize treatments to your exact needs.

Our passion is medicine. Our promise is compassion. Our priority is YOU.

Coordinated care

Your treatment begins the moment you pick up the phone. From travel to treatment and on through recovery, your dedicated destination medicine navigator will be your personal health liaison, answering your questions and making sure every step of your experience is supportive, seamless, and effective.

Your destination medicine navigator is one point of contact for:

  • Clinical service – Gathering medical records, scheduling and coordinating medical appointments, and following up on test results
  • Pricing and financial options before your visit
  • Travel and accommodation guidance for you and your family
  • Assisting with communications and language interpretation

Second opinions

We’re looking to provide the very best care for all patients – and that often includes providing a second opinion. Especially important when receiving an unexpected or troubling diagnosis, second opinions can help you avoid a misdiagnosis as well as introduce you to additional treatment options.

Key reasons to seek a second opinion:

  • Your diagnosis is rare or seems unclear
  • Your diagnosis requires invasive or risky treatment
  • Your current treatment doesn’t seem to be helping
  • You’re experiencing significant side effects from your current treatment

Specialized treatments

Our world-class physicians and teams deliver life-changing care for a wide variety of maladies in a wide variety of specialties and subspecialties.
