Community Health Investment
Providence Holy Cross Medical Center (PHCMC) was founded in 1961 by the Sisters of the Holy Cross to serve a growing population in the northern San Fernando Valley. In 1996, the medical center was purchased by Providence Health & Services, which was founded by the Sisters of Providence. These Sisters have been serving the western United States since the mid-1800s and the San Fernando Valley since 1943. PHCMC, a nonprofit health organization, has expanded its facility to 377 beds, serving the health care needs of residents in San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Simi Valleys. To these communities, PHCMC offers a state-of-the-art Cancer Center, a Heart Center, Orthopedics, Neurosciences, Rehabilitation Services, Women’s and Children’s Services, as well as a Level II Trauma Center.
