Our communities have trusted Providence Health & Services with their health and well-being for more than 150 years. We provide an environment in which every patient, especially the poor and vulnerable in our communities, can find hope and care.
To us, caring is something that extends far beyond our doors. As a faith-based not-for-profit health system, it is our tradition and commitment to care for those in need—in our communities and around the world. Our work with local, national and international organizations allows us to reach out to others in ways that continue to strengthen the fabric of our communities.
We believe in getting involved.
We encourage our employees to take part in activities and support causes that will make a difference in the lives of those around them. Ours is a culture of giving, one that affords every employee the opportunity to participate in programs such as:
Addiction Recovery Center, in Medford, Oregon, gives addicts opportunities to turn their lives around.
Alaska SafeKids, a two-decade-old program that helps prevent childhood injuries by funding safety education and by providing bike helmets and car seats to those in need.
Ongoing donations of medical equipment and supplies to organizations in 25 third-world countries around the globe.
Providence Regina House, a food bank located in West Seattle that provides life's needed necessities like food and clothing to those in need.
San Fernando Violence Prevention Coalition, a southern California program that helps individuals escape the gang lifestyle.
Team Up Montana, a community partnership that helps people going through chemotherapy and cancer treatment alone and without resources.
