Our Team

I have been constantly impressed not only with the CHRISTUS Stehlin Foundation’s rich legacy of transformative research, but also the tenacious commitment of foundation staff to the vision of Dr. Stehlin. A connection between this vision and the mission of our sponsoring congregations was immediately clear, as both seek not only to treat illness, but also honor the dignity inherent in every person.”

Tom Royer, M.D.,
CEO Emeritus, CHRISTUS Health, 2011
