CommonSpirit Health Data Engineer Healthcare in Glendale, California


Who We Are

CommonSpirit Health was created in early 2019 when Catholic Health Initiatives and Dignity Health came together as one ministry. Drawing on our combined resources, CommonSpirit is dedicated to building healthy communities, advocating for the poor and vulnerable, and innovating how and where healing can happen—both inside our hospitals and out in the community. We are doing this through the dedicated work of thousands of physicians, advanced practice clinicians, nurses, and staff; through clinical excellence delivered across a system of hospitals and other care centers covering 21 states and accessible to nearly one in four Americans; and through more than $4 billion annually in charity care, community benefits, and government program services. The CommonSpirit name was inspired by scripture: "Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good." Those words motivate and guide us every day. They celebrate the healing gift of compassion that God gives to us all, and they remind us of our calling to serve the common good. Learn more at
