Our Mission and Core Values

Overview

Our Mission and core values are carried out by employees, physicians, nurses, volunteers and others who work together in a spirit of service.

Providence Health & Services is transitioning to a new name and Mission statement – as part of our reunification of Providence Services, Providence Health & Services and Little Company of Mary. We have a new name – Providence Health & Services, a new logo and newly worded Mission statement.

Our Mission remains the same, but some of the words in the Mission statement are new:
