Our 2012 Community Benefit Report

Providence Cares

Giving Back to the Communities We Serve 

Our Providence Mission carries a vibrant history of nearly 160 years in the West. This same pioneering spirit is alive in the people of Providence today. In the face of rapidly changing health care and in a manner reflecting our Mission and core values, we are identifying needs and creating solutions by working with community partners. 

Together with them, we assess where the greatest unmet needs are among people in the communities we serve. These include: 

  • Access to mental health and substance abuse services 
  • Access to primary medical care 
  • Access to chronic disease management and support (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer) 
  • Access to basic needs: food, housing and transportation 

In this report, you'll see examples of how we are working to meet these needs. You'll also hear about our work to keep people healthier. It is our privilege to serve people throughout Oregon.
