Is a For-Profit Structure a Viable Alternative for Catholic Health Care Ministry?

A unique forum for dialogue among practitioners, academics and scholars in law, finance, theology and Catholic social teaching.

Date & Time:

Monday, March 26, 2012
8:00 AM - 2:00 PM


Free. Advance Registration Required


Seton Hall University School of Law
Newark, New Jersey

The purpose of the Symposium is to engage scholars and practitioners from multiple disciplines to develop an objective framework for analyzing the following questions:

  • Is the delivery of health care as a ministry compatible with providing that care through an investor-owned company publicly identified as Catholic?
  • If not, why not?
  • If yes, are there any management, governance or other structures or processes that may need to be developed to accommodate Catholic health care as a ministry?

The Symposium will not take a position on whether such conversions, in any of its forms, should or should not occur. The Symposium will provide the audience participants with the range of issues that may impact their specific decision.
