Can profitability and religious mission be integrated?

Yes.

But what do we mean by profit?

Usually, we think of profit as money going into the pockets of CEOs and stockholders. Hospitals with a religious mission must be profitable too! The difference here is that the money that would otherwise go straight into the pockets of a few people goes into community benefit programs that support the stakeholders of the hospital - the members of the community, especially the poor and vulnerable.
