Donations power innovation in lifesaving care and support prevention and wellness programs to improve the heart health of all those who come through our doors. 

Donors help bring innovative heart care to Oregon


In Oregon, the facts are alarming: one in five Oregonians dies of heart disease. At least one of the top three risk factors for heart disease affects 63% of local adults. And the rates of high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries among youth and young adults are rising rapidly.

With our older population growing, Oregon faces a tidal wave of heart disease. With your help, we can meet this need by expanding access to cardiac rehabilitation. We can advance research to make care more effective, responsive and fair. Your gift can power prevention and wellness programs for people of all ages and abilities.

When you give to support Providence Heart Institute you advance innovative treatments and technology, deliver heart disease prevention and wellness programs to the community, propel clinical trials and data-based research and provide lifesaving support not covered by insurance.
