Help Providence during the COVID-19 crisis

During this COVID-19 pandemic, we at Providence have seen the compassion and genuine care from individuals and businesses of our community. 

Although specific needs for COVID-19 recovery continue to evolve, we know they will be significant. Below are several funds we would ask you to consider supporting as they will provide direct help, needed equipment and supplies.

Greatest Need Fund

This fund provides the greatest flexibility and accessibility to address immediate needs. Both Providence foundations in Southwest Washington use gifts to this fund to directly support their affiliated hospitals and programs. Greatest need funds will be used to support COVID-19 response and recovery.

Patient Assistance Fund

The Sister Rita Patient Assistance fund (Providence St. Peter Hospital) and Sister Carolyn Patient Assistance fund (Providence Centralia Hospital) are used regularly to remove barriers for patients awaiting discharge from the hospital. These can include transportation, lodging, food, clothing and other needs preventing them from making the transition out of the hospital when inpatient care is no longer required. These funds benefit patients being discharged and those waiting admission when hospital beds are in high demand.

Employee Emergency Assistance Fund

Established and funded primarily by Providence employees to support emergent needs of their coworkers, donations to either foundation for this purpose will be available to our caregivers needing financial assistance due to COVID-19 or any other unforeseen financial hardship in their household. These funds are available to employees of all Providence ministries in Southwest Washington.

Whatever you can do to show your support for our caregivers and patients, please know it matters deeply to us. Whether a prayer for their protection or a donation to provide direct support, care and comfort, you are making a difference. You are helping save lives in our community.

If you have any questions, please email send us an email and we will respond as quickly as possible.
