Our calling and our promise

Providence Health & Services continues a vibrant history of serving the needs of communities in Oregon and southwest Washington for more than 160 years. Together with community-focused organizations and innovative partners, Providence reaches beyond the clinical setting to meet the needs of today, while transforming conditions for a better tomorrow. Our Mission calls us to care for everyone, especially those who are poor and vulnerable. Community benefit investments are an important way we partner to create healthier communities, together.

In 2016, Providence in Oregon invested more than $236 million in community benefit. We also were honored to complete Community Health Needs Assessments with our partners to identify the greatest areas of unmet needs in communities we serve across the state. What we discovered represents the people at the heart of our Mission:

  • Access to oral, preventive and primary care
  • Mental health, trauma prevention and substance use services 
  • Chronic conditions prevention and management
  • Social determinants of health and well-being

We invite you to learn more about how we are working to fulfill these needs and keep people healthy in our latest news. It is our privilege to serve people throughout Oregon and southwest Washington.
