Community Support


Community benefit investments are one way Providence lives its Mission. For generations, we’ve offered a caring hand to those with the greatest need in our community.

In 2018, we devoted more than $17.3 million in community benefit to make sustainable improvements in the health of our communities throughout Southeast Washington.

Community Health Needs Assessments and Community Health Improvement Plans

For generations, Providence has partnered with people of goodwill to offer a caring hand of compassion. We collaborate with social service and government agencies, charitable foundations, community organizations, universities and many other partners to identify the greatest needs through community health needs assessments. Then our solutions are reflected in community health improvement plans.
