About the Ministry you will Serve:


Every day, 111,000 compassionate caregivers serve patients and communities through Providence St. Joseph Health, a faith-based not-for-profit health and social services system with 50 hospitals, 829 clinics and hundreds of services offered outside hospital walls. Together, we share a singular commitment: to improve the health of everyone in our communities, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

A leading parent organization in health care, we offer a comprehensive range of services across Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas and Washington through a diverse family of Catholic, other faith-based and secular organizations.

Providence St. Joseph Health provides accessible, high-quality, compassionate health care in an increasingly uncertain world—regardless of coverage or ability to pay. We help people and communities benefit from the best health care model for the future, today, by delivering innovative solutions for mental health and wellness; scientific wellness; end-of-life care; population health and by simplifying health for everyone through digital solutions.

Providence St. Joseph Health was established in July 2016 with the combination of Providence Health & Services and St. Joseph Health. Throughout fiscal year 2016, the health system earned total revenues of nearly $19 billion and provided a combined $1.6 billion of community benefit to transform health care and address critical needs in our communities.

The founders of both Providence Health & Services and St. Joseph Health were courageous women ahead of their time. The Sisters of Providence and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange brought health care and other social services to the American West when it was still a rugged, untamed frontier. Today, the Providence St. Joseph Health draws upon their pioneering and compassionate spirit to plan for the next century of health care.

Providence Health & Services

In 1856, Mother Joseph and four Sisters of Providence established hospitals, schools and orphanages across the Northwest. Over the years, other Catholic sisters transferred sponsorship of their ministries to Providence, including the Little Company of Mary, Dominicans and Charity of Leavenworth. Recently, Swedish Health Services, Kadlec Regional Medical Center and Pacific Medical Centers have joined Providence as secular partners with a common commitment to serving all members of the community. Today, Providence serves Alaska, California, Montana, Oregon and Washington.

St. Joseph Health

In 1912, a small group of Sisters of St. Joseph landed on the rugged shores of Eureka, Calif., to provide education and health care. The ministry later established roots in Orange, California and expanded to serve Southern California, the California High Desert, Northern California and Texas. The health system established many key partnerships, including a merger between Lubbock Methodist Hospital System and St. Mary Hospital to form Covenant Health in Lubbock Texas. Recently, an affiliation was established with Hoag Health to increase access to services in Orange County, California.

At present, the Providence St. Joseph Health family includes:

  • Providence Health & Services

  • St. Joseph Health System

  • Covenant Health in Texas

  • Facey Medical Foundation in California

  • Hoag Memorial Presbyterian in California

  • Kadlec in Washington

  • Pacific Medical Centers in Washington

  • Swedish Health Services in Washington
