The second year of the pandemic challenged all of us in ways we could never have foreseen. Throughout these difficult times, Providence has been unwavering in our support of people across Montana through our community benefit investments.

Supporting our communities is integral to how we partner with local organizations to ensure health needs are met, especially for those who are poor and vulnerable. We work to address the immediate needs of our neighbors while also looking toward the future. Together, we are investing to help build a more equitable and sustainable future by supporting organizations, programs and initiatives in Montana that create lasting, positive change in the communities we serve.

As part of our commitment to be our communities’ health partner, we invested $27 million in community benefit in 2021. Our partnerships include: 

  • Journey of Hope, to care for pregnant people with substance use disorder, ensuring healthy parents and newborns.
  • A medical-legal partnership to support patients with civil and legal needs.
  • A palliative care program to improve the quality of life for patients with serious or life-threatening diseases.

Our caregivers make these partnerships possible by caring for all who come to us, regardless of their ability to pay. They have persevered through difficult circumstances to serve the people of Montana with unforgettable compassion. Please take a few minutes to learn about our 2021 community benefit investments.
