Our Services

  • Assault and Abuse Services

  • Computed tomography (CT) Scan

    CT scans, also known as CAT scans, obtain multiple cross-sectional images of the body by using special X-rays and computer enhancement to create an image many times more sensitive than a simple X-ray.
  • Diagnostic Imaging

    Providence medical imaging services ensure the highest standard of patient care and excellence in performance, interpretation and delivery of cost-effective imaging services.
  • Emergency Services

    Emergency departments see patients based on severity of their illness, medical symptoms or injuries, not on a first-come, first-served basis. It is necessary to be clear and specific when describing your illness. This helps to provide the best possible medical care as quickly as possible.
  • Fall Prevention

    Falls do not just happen because of aging. They are preventable with many different factors playing a role in causing falls.
  • Infusion & Pharmacy Services

    Clinical pharmacists work closely with the patient’s physician and the infusion nurse and dietitian to coordinate care for all prescribed therapies.
  • Inpatient Rehabilitation

    Inpatient rehabilitation therapy is focused on giving you the skills and support to stay at home after leaving the hospital. Therapy often revolves around improving mobility and self-care skills such as dressing, bathing, feeding and toileting.

    Providence offers a full range of compassionate response to children and adults who are grieving the loss of a significant person.
  • Blood Work and Medical Laboratory Testing

    Lab work, such as blood tests, help diagnose, treat or monitor your health and provide information that cannot be found on a physical exam.
  • Mammography

    For women who aren’t having any breast cancer symptoms, we offer a screening mammogram, an X-ray test of the breasts (mammary glands) used to screen for breast problems, such as a lump, and whether a lump is fluid-filled (a cyst) or a solid mass.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that lets your doctor see detailed pictures of the inside of your body. MRI combines the use of strong magnets and radio waves to form an MRI image.

    Nutrition consultation services provide nutrition assessments for nutrition problems, such as obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, diabetes, pediatric and women’s nutrition, sports medicine and how to make healthy lifestyle habits.
  • Occupational Therapy

    Occupational therapy helps people with physical, developmental or emotional disabilities lead independent, productive and fulfilling lives.

    Our orthopedic doctors work as a team with physical therapists to keep people healthy and active. To help minimize the risk of injury, we provide information on fall prevention, flexibility, conditioning and prevention.
  • Outpatient Infusion

    Infusion Services department serves patients needing IV antibiotics or other IV medications, as well as patients needing blood transfusions.
  • Palliative Care

    Palliative or supportive care is medical care focused on relief of the pain, symptoms and stress of serious illnesses like cancer, dementia, heart disease, lung disease and multiple sclerosis. Unlike hospice, palliative care is appropriate for patients in all disease stages, including those undergoing treatment for curable illnesses and people living with chronic diseases, as well as patients who are nearing the end of life and need comfort care.
  • Physical Therapy

    Physical therapists diagnose and treat patients of all ages who have medical conditions, health-related problems or injuries that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities of daily life. The goal of physical therapy is to get you back to daily activity without pain as safely and quickly as possible.

    Primary healthcare for seniors living in nursing homes. Our doctors do routine exams and help you manage illness, chronic disease and medications – in the nursing home itself. We want to help you feel better, keep you well and avoid ambulance and hospital expenses.
  • Speech Therapy

    Speech or language pathologists focus on evaluating, diagnosing and treating people with oral communication disorders. Speech therapists are instrumental in preventing problems related to speech, language, cognitive communication, voice and fluency. This includes both receptive (understanding speech) and expressive (speaking) communication problems. Speech therapists also treat people with swallowing disorders due to stroke, brain injury or nervous system impairments.
