At Providence, where faith leads our way, we invite you to come exactly as you are, including where you come from and what you believe. To bring your whole self—mind, body and spirit—and know we’ll always walk alongside you, in all the moments of your life.

Our service to all is steeped in tradition. When the Sisters arrived in the Pacific Northwest in 1856, they came to answer a call for help from a new pioneer community. What they found were many communities in need of service, and so with dedication to the mission and collaboration with like-minded partners, their ministry grew to what is now a five-state health system. Providence continues a tradition of caring that the Sisters of Providence began more than 158 years ago.

 

Our Mission

As expressions of God’s healing love, witnessed through the ministry of Jesus, we are steadfast in serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

Our Impact

At Providence, we use our voice to advocate for vulnerable populations and needed reforms in health care.  Fostering a culture of philanthropy enables Providence to support the needs of its patients and caregivers, and provide compassionate community-focused healthcare - regardless of coverage or ability to pay. 

In an increasingly uncertain world, we believe the generosity of others can make health for a better world a reality.
