Caring for the Community
Providence Health & Services Alaska
Health for a Better World
Health doesn't just happen when we visit a doctor's office or need care as a patient in a hospital. Our health is integrated into each of our lives as go about the day in our communities. Providence consistently evaluates the health needs of the communities we serve searching for needs that exist and opportunities for creating health for a better world. As you can imagine, no one person or organization can do all that alone. Collaboration is key.
As a donor, we know you are looking for ways to invest in these collaborative solutions with the confidence that you are investing for specific outcomes beyond specific organizations that serve specific causes. It's the big stuff such as statewide coordination of care during a global pandemic, addressing health and homelessness, strengthening the complete continuum of care, or focusing on better access to heath care, your philanthropy investment with Providence leverages our community power together to make the greatest impact possible.
Thanks to generous donors, we are closer to creating health for a better Alaska.
