Our calling and our promise

As Providence Health & Services continues to grow and flourish, our Mission of compassionate care to the most vulnerable has been strengthened and expanded in innovative ways to meet the needs of the poor, the disenfranchised, the mentally ill and others who fall through the cracks.

Through the generosity of the community and acting with partners, we have expanded our reach significantly in recent years. By partnering with community groups, our local churches and synagogues and other nonprofit groups that share our Mission and values, we are truly creating healthier communities, together.

Our new Community Wellness Center in Wilmington opened in partnership with the nonprofit developer of low-cost family housing. It has become the heart of that community, offering fitness classes, counseling and other wellness services.

Through partnerships with low-cost clinics, our three San Fernando Valley ministries are helping the uninsured and underinsured who use our Emergency Departments to find medical homes. In turn, these clinics refer patients back to Providence for specialty care that otherwise might take months to access.

Among our most vulnerable are the homeless in our communities. Homelessness is a crisis in the Los Angeles Area and we are called to provide relief. Partnering with community groups on the Westside, we are able to help those with no homes find the resources they need for medical care, social services and psychiatric care.

We are fortunate to be guided by core values that offer us the privilege of helping our neighbors in need. Our numerous community benefit programs, inspired by our founding Sisters, are built on those ideals and provide us with the tools to reach out and make a difference in countless lives.

We thank our Providence caregivers, our community partners and our supporters for working together to reveal God’s love for all, living our tradition of quality and compassionate care.
