California embraces our responsibility to respond to the needs of people in our communities, especially the poor and vulnerable. This commitment, this mission rooted in god's love for all, began with the sisters of providence more than 150 years ago. The heart of our mission - we focus our community benefit outreach on four specific populations. These are low-income and uninsured people, diverse populations, older citizens, and people with behavioral needs. Our outreach can range from covering the medical bills of a husband and father disabled by diabetes, to financially supporting a nonprofit that embraces older refugees and immigrants. During these hard economic times in our neighborhoods and our nation, we reinforce our commitments to caring for the poor and vulnerable. This compassionate caring is, and always has been, the heart of ourmission. Providence health system - so. California is a not-for-profit network of hospitals, care centers, health plans, physicians, home health services, clinics and other services.

With medicaid expansion and health insurance exchanges, providence's charity care spending reflects the success of more people gaining health insurance coverage. We served 24 percent more people in 2014 for a total of 3. 3 million unique patients, including 26 percent more medicaid patients in an environment of decreased reimbursement for government-sponsored medical care. We care about school children who've never seen a dentist, about indigent emergency patients who desperately need follow-up care and for the elderly who need a ride to the doctor or just a friendly phone call to say hello. We are driven by a commitment to the providence mission of compassionate care for all, especially the poor and vulnerable, and to our core values of respect, compassion, justice, stewardship and excellence.
