Whole Person Care
Providence National Foundation
Whole person care is, at its core, a goal-aligned, relationship-based approach to caregiving. By encouraging clinicians to know their patients as whole persons, health care professionals can go beyond treating patients’ physical condition to also devote attention to patients’ emotional, social and spiritual well-being.
Know me, Care for me, Ease my way
Providence believes we can fundamentally change the U.S. health care system by not only tending to a person's physical health, but also caring for their mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Keeping the whole person at the center of care, the Institute for Human Caring is a key center of thoughtful innovation at Providence. The institute believes that raising expectations for health care to treat everyone as a whole person – eliciting and honoring our values, preferences and priorities – will inspire a growing demand for professionals who can make whole person care the new normal.
