Community Health Needs Assessments

In the face of rapidly changing health care, our commitment to our Mission to care for everyone remains unchanged.

This ministry greatly depends on partnering with others in the community who are equally committed to doing good and improving the health of all. Together with community partners we conduct community health assessments to understand what our community needs are. Then with our partners, we identify the greatest unmet needs among the people in the communities we serve. These include lack of access to affordable care; lack of access to mental health services; poverty and homelessness; and barriers to healthy behaviors and disease prevention.

The Sisters of Providence and Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange both have deep roots in California. They brought education and health care to California stretching from the redwood forests in Northern California to the beach shores of Orange county - and everywhere in between.

Across California, our health centers are known for outstanding programs in cancer, cardiology, neurosciences, orthopedics, women's services, emergency and trauma care, pediatrics and neonatal intensive care. Providence is committed to quality compassionate care for all, honoring the core values of the founding Sisters of Providence and living the mission they established back in 1856: to serve the poor and vulnerable.

In Northern California, Providence provides health care services to Eureka, Redwood, Petaluma, Napa and Santa Rosa.

Providence is dedicated to quality and compassionate care and to building for the future.
