Sponsored Institutions

For more than a century, the Adrian Dominican Sisters have established numerous institutions in the United States and some overseas that have furthered the Mission of the Congregation. The Congregation continues to sponsor the following schools and literacy centers where lay women and men work in partnership with Sisters to carry forward the legacy. In addition, two hospitals founded by Adrian Dominican Sisters continue to carry forward the legacy of the Sisters, although they are no longer sponsored directly by the Congregation.

Adrian Dominican Sisters on February 1, 2019, transferred sponsorship of Dominican Hospital and St. Rose Dominican Hospitals to the Catholic Health Care Federation (a public juridic person). The Congregation is now a “Participating Member” of CommonSpirit Health, which provides the Congregation with an advisory role in the new health system.

Dominican Hospital
is a nonprofit, full-service hospital that continuously strives to improve the health of the people in the Santa Cruz, California, community. Essential to this mission are the core values of dignity, collaboration, justice, excellence, and stewardship. 


St. Rose Dominican Hospitals is the only not-for-profit, religiously sponsored hospital system in the Henderson-Las Vegas community. Guided by the vision and values of the Adrian Dominican Sisters, St. Rose serves the community at three campuses: Rose de Lima and Siena in Henderson and San Martin in Las Vegas.
