By coming together, providence st. Joseph health seeks to better serve its communities through greater patient affordability, outstanding clinical care, improvements to the patient experience and introduction of new services where they are needed most. Together, our caregivers serve in 50 hospitals, 829 clinics across alaska, california, montana, new mexico, oregon, texas and washington. 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. Providence health & servicesin 1856, mother joseph and four sisters of providence established hospitals, schools and orphanages across the northwest. Over the years, other catholic sisters transferred sponsorship of their ministries to providence, including the little company of mary, dominicans and charity of leavenworth. Recently, swedish health services, kadlec regional medical center and pacific medical centers have joined providence as secular partners with a common commitment to serving all members of the community. Today, providence serves alaska, california, montana, oregon and washington. St. Joseph health systemin 1912, a small group of sisters of st. Joseph landed on the rugged shores of eureka, california to provide education and health care. They later established roots in orange, california, and expanded to serve southern california, northern california and texas. The health system established many key partnerships, including a merger between lubbock methodist hospital system and st. Mary hospital to form covenant health in lubbock texas. Recently, an affiliation was established with hoag health to increase access to services in orange county, california.

capital projects that the foundation supported in 2017 included renovations to the assisted living kitchen.
