Chair's Message

Dear Friends,

These are really incredible times at Providence Willamette Falls Medical Center. Our Ministry is growing and expanding services to meet the needs of the communities throughout Clackamas County. 

Health care as a whole is transforming rapidly. The changing landscape brings uncertainty but one thing we can be confident of – Providence Willamette Falls Medical Center is strong and sustainable. It will be here for generations to come.

Work is underway to expand primary care and other clinical services such as Cardiac Rehabilitation. The community need for physician specialty services is constantly being evaluated and we can expect to see growth in those areas in the years to come. We remain deeply committed to addressing the needs of our elderly population and to serving the poor and vulnerable. The support from the community has been invaluable.

We are dreaming of big things while we maintain those life-saving services that are so important. We can't do it alone. As a not-for-profit health system, community support is essential to all of our plans. The foundation - governed by a local board of trustees - is our link to the community, ensuring that the hospital is a good neighbor.

In partnership with a family of loyal donors, we have constructed a community education center, supported the Children's Center of Clackamas County to aid young victims of abuse, supported the development of a free-clinic to serve the most medically vulnerable, and helped the hospital buy needed equipment and bring new services to our campus.  

By making these projects a reality, your generosity can have a lasting impact on the health, wellness and vitality of this region. I hope you will join me in supporting projects such as cardiac rehabilitation, children’s mental health emergency services, hospice, spiritual care and cutting-edge technology for our hospital.

Thank you for being a partner in our work.

Sincerely,

Jeff Sumpter, chair
Providence Willamette Falls Medical Foundation
