Our calling and our promise

As health care continues to evolve, our commitment to care for everyone remains unchanged. Our community benefit investments in 2016 increased to more than $1 billion, building on our commitment to care for those who are poor and vulnerable.

In 2016, we partnered with St. Joseph Health to create a new organization called Providence St. Joseph Health. With a combined $1.6 billion in community benefit, Providence and St. Joseph together can reach deeper into our communities to transform health care and address critical needs, including behavioral health. When the Sisters of Providence began our tradition of caring 160 years ago, their ministry greatly depended on collaborating with like-minded partners. This same pioneering spirit continues today as our calling and our promise.

Thank you to our caregivers, volunteers and board members who join us on a journey to touch millions of lives in the places where relief, comfort and care are needed. We invite you to learn more about how we are making a difference for some of the most vulnerable in our latest news.
