Providence Health & Services is guided by a Mission of caring that the Sisters of Providence began in the Northwest 160 years ago. We provide
compassionate, high-quality, affordable care to all who need our services.
Providence is the largest health care provider in Oregon and one of the largest private employers in the state.
Medical centers and hospitals
Providence hospitals have been recognized for excellence by such groups as American Nurses Credentialing Center, American Heart Association, American Stroke Association, National Cancer Institute and Portland Business Journal.
Providence Medical Group
With more than 90 clinics and more than 600 employed
physicians in Oregon, Providence Medical Group offers primary
and specialty care to adults and children. Our patient-centered
medical home clinics have received Oregon’s highest, Tier 3,
recognition for excellence.
Providence Health Plan
Providence Health Plan offers a cohesive approach to member
and patient care with insurance options for commercial and
self-funded groups, people eligible for Medicare or Medicaid,
and other individuals and families.
Serving our communities
Continuing a history of compassionate service, Providence reaches beyond the walls of our clinical settings to touch the lives of vulnerable individuals. We do this through community benefit investments, collaborating with local partners to assess community health needs and create solutions together.
Reduced need for charity care allows our ministries more opportunity to intentionally invest in organizations and programs that help people in most need.
Last year, Providence invested more than $417.5 million in community benefit. This included $43.4 million in free and discounted care so people who are uninsured or underinsured could access services. Other investments were in health education and research, along with $16 million in community partnerships to directly fund health improvement initiatives and health screenings across Oregon.
