Helping Patients

Providence is committed to working with our community partners.

Community Support

From the early days of settlement in the Pacific Northwest to the 21st century, Providence has been working to serve the greatest unmet needs of our communities. As a not-for-profit, Catholic health ministry it is our honor, tradition and commitment to support those who need help.

Providence talks to many community partners to help us determine the most significant needs. As part of our outreach, every three years we conduct a formal Community Health Assessment to ask important questions about needs. Learn more about the assessment and how Providence uses it to guide community benefits.

Community Benefits in Action

Providence provided more than $237 million in community benefits in 2012, including $94.6 million in free or reduced-cost care to our patients in need.

As a not-for-profit Catholic health care ministry, Providence embraces its responsibility to provide for the needs of the communities we serve. Our not-for-profit status and our careful stewardship of financial resources allow us to deliver quality care and also to donate many subsidies, services and grants to meet local needs.
