About Providence Mount St. Vincent

Our philosophy of care

  • Is driven by the core values of "Respect, Compassion, Justice, Excellence and Stewardship";
  • Centers around the needs, preferences and desires of our residents. We call this "Person-centered Care," and it empowers residents and patients to choose the daily routines and services they wish to receive. As a result, each individual is able to maintain his or her independence, privacy, sense of home, and dignity;
  • Provides a home-like atmosphere whether you are staying with us long term or for a short stay.

Our programs and services include:

Internationally and nationally recognized:

  • Pioneer Network elected Charlene Boyd, Administrator at Providence Mount St. Vincent, as the first chair of its national board. Pioneer Network is a national organization working toward a New Culture of Aging that is life-affirming, satisfying, humane and meaningful. Its goal is to move eldercare to a place where all care and support are person-directed, not system-directed, where flexibility and self-determination are embraced and practiced. To this day (some 20+ years later), The Mount is recognized as a model of self-directed resident and patient care.
  • A current media focus is on our intergenerational programming and the emphasis we place on intergenerational activities throughout The Mount. Although we have had an on-site day care center for infants and children for many years and enjoyed the benefits this provides to both our residents and the children who attend, this concept has recently engaged the hearts and minds of people around the world.
