The impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 transformed how we provided care to our patients and delivered on our Mission in the communities we serve. As we address these impacts and meet evolving needs of our patients and community, Providence remains focused on engaging in our vision, health for a better world. After a year of crises, loss, triumph and hope, we look toward 2021 with steadfast confidence that our community will recover and thrive.

    Montana, like so many areas, has seen a greater need for mental health services and crisis prevention since the pandemic began. To combat these issues in 2020, Providence Montana invested $26 million in community benefit to increase access to mental health care and wellness for our communities including:

    • Opening a newly expanded Acute Adolescent Unit (AAU), doubling its former capacity
    • Incorporating age-appropriate youth supports in the AAU such as space for virtual schooling, exercise, socialization and medical care
    • Addressing food insecurity in our community

    I am grateful every day to our dedicated team of caregivers and community partners for their resilience through 2020. I invite you to learn more about our commitment in Montana as we continue to address our community’s needs together and promote health for a better world. 

    - Joel Gilbertson, executive vice president and regional chief executive, Providence, Washington and Montana.
