Who We Serve - St. Augustine Health Ministries

Built On a Mission of Service

During its first decade St. Augustine provided skilled nursing care, primarily to older adults. Today, St. Augustine Health Ministries, the anchor of the Detroit Shoreway community, serves over 1000 individuals each day through a continuum of health care and community services and employs over 500. Since its inception, St. Augustine  has served individuals based on their needs, not their religion or financial status. As a non-profit, Catholic ministry, St. Augustine has built a reputation of providing high quality, compassionate care; a reputation which remains today.
