2021 Annual Report

2021 Annual Report

Investing in the Power of Communities

2021 was an extraordinary year marked by three major surges in COVID-19 volumes, a national shortage of health care personnel, as well as deferrals of non-emergent care. Even with these tremendous challenges, the Providence family of organizations continued to invest in our communities, guided by our strategic plan and our community benefit priorities.

This annual report shares stories about the ways we responded to the pandemic and forged a path to recovery and renewal. Across every region we serve, activities focused on meeting the diverse needs of our neighbors, frequently working with local partners to make a measurable difference. Our teams also found new and more equitable ways to bring needed care and services to our communities.

Woven throughout this report are examples of our multi-year $50 million commitment to reduce disparities and racial injustice in health care. In 2021, our focus was on underserved communities most affected by the pandemic.

Many stories reflect our deep commitment to community benefit, which has increased $366 million since the pandemic began. None of this progress would be possible without the dedication, professionalism and compassion of our caregivers. Throughout a difficult year, they cared for our patients, our communities and each other.

Financial data presented in this report reflects Providence’s organizational structure during 2021.
