Advocacy & Social Responsibility

Advocacy & Social Responsibility

In partnership with communities, the Providence family of organizations advocates for responsible, sustainable, and equitable policies and practices.

We reach beyond the walls of hospitals and care facilities to work with local, state and national partners to advance policies designed to better serve vulnerable populations and promote justice in our communities. We also partner to promote practices and infrastructure that will sustain the planet for future generations and transform our communities for a healthier, more equitable world.
