Providence St. Joseph Health is a new organization created by Providence Health & Services and St. Joseph Health with the goal of improving the health of the communities it serves, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.Together, our 111,000 caregivers (all employees) serve in 50 hospitals, 829 clinics and a comprehensive range of services across Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas and Washington. The Providence St. Joseph Health family includes:
Bringing these organizations together is a reflection of each of our unique missions, increasing access to health care and bringing quality, compassionate care to those we serve, with a focus on those most in need. By coming together, Providence St. Joseph Health has the potential to seek greater affordability, achieve outstanding and reliable clinical care, improve the patient experience and introduce new services where they are needed most.
The founders of both organizations were courageous women ahead of their time. The Sisters of Providence and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange brought health care and other social services to the American West when it was still a rugged, untamed frontier. Now, as we face a different landscape – a changing health care environment – we draw upon their pioneering and compassionate spirit to plan for the next century of health care.
