Your Impact


More than 9,000 babies are born in an Oregon Providence hospital every year, each with their own unique health care needs. Some arrive as premature babies. Some develop chronic conditions or challenges. Some are healthy but are affected by the medical conditions of family members.

When children are involved, illness and injuries affect entire families. Here are a few of the ways donors made a difference last year:
