Bishop Robert Vasa Strips Hospital of Catholic Title because it could not meet the Catholic standard.

"It is my responsibility to ensure the hospital is following Catholic principles both in name and in fact," Bishop Vasa said. "It would be misleading for me to allow St. Charles Bend to be acknowledged as Catholic in name while I am certain that some important tenets of the Ethical and Religious Directives are no longer being observed."  So, the Catholic Diocese of Baker announced that the Catholic Church will no longer sponsor St. Charles Medical Center-Bend.  In particular, it is because of sterilization procedures performed at the hospital that goes against the Church's teachings.  Bishop's notice found here http://www.sentinel.org/node/10753

Commentary:  Thank you Bishop Vasa for defending the faith.
