Re-Imagining Emergency Care
at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center
Help expand emergency services to bring faster, even better care to more people.
Today: Busy and frequently full
Since opening our current facilities in 1994, we have responded to our community’s change and growth. We have constantly improved our processes, added dedicated spaces for children and behavioral health care, and stretched to accommodate patients from Providence’s rapidly-growing heart and stroke programs.
Message from our campaign co-chairs
For better or worse, our family has experienced a lot of emergency care, both here in Oregon and around the country, from pediatrics to adults, in less-urgent situations to life-threatening ones. Among all those hospital emergency rooms, we experienced some of the best care and the best caregivers at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.
However, our experiences there also made us aware of some of the department's limitations. So it was exciting for us to participate in figuring out how to make the Providence St. Vincent ED even better. We saw first-hand all the hard work going on, the statistics showing the need, the international expertise brought in to help with the redesign, and the modeling showing how the new ED will be successful at meeting our area’s growing future needs.
This project – based on deep analysis and thorough planning – will meet those needs for years into the future and better serve the whole community. For those looking to truly make an investment in a project with a bottom-line impact on all of us, this is the project. Join us and help re-imagine emergency care at Providence St. Vincent.

The right care in the right place at the right time
As we grow to serve more than 100,000 patients each year, our new emergency facility will cut wait times and ambulance diversions to half of what they are today.
The new facility will be larger, with 84 total treatment spaces compared to 58 today.
It will also be safer and smarter, designed to provide faster and more efficient care. Uniform treatment rooms will speed access to equipment and supplies. A second CT scanner will deliver faster diagnoses. And a new unified mobile monitoring system will replace several aging and incompatible systems.
