On New Year's Day 1950, Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital opened its doors. More than 70 years later, Santa Rosa's premier hospital has expanded into a full-service, not-for-profit system of inpatient, outpatient, and community outreach services for the residents of Sonoma County and California's North Coast communities.
As a ministry of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, we are committed to the holistic care of persons – body, mind and spirit. The mission of Providence, of which we are a part, is to extend the healing ministry of Jesus in the tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange by continually improving the health and quality of life of people in the communities we serve. Like the early Sisters who came out of their cloistered convent to care for the vulnerable and disadvantaged in the streets of Le Puy, France, our mission compels us to reach out beyond the walls of our hospitals to care for persons where there is a need.
Our expanding continuum of care today includes: urgent and emergent care, trauma services, inpatient and outpatient surgery, critical care, cardiology, oncology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, neurology, orthopedics, pediatrics, family-centered maternity care, newborn intensive care, transitional care, palliative care, home care, hospice, rehabilitation, work care, acute psychiatric services, mobile and dental clinics, health and wellness education, neighborhood organization, advocacy and youth mentoring.
Physicians throughout our extensive service area refer patients to Providence facilities for open heart surgery, neurosurgery, clinical cancer research, psychiatric care, rehabilitation and much more. Sophisticated diagnostic procedures available at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital include angiocardiography, cardiac catheterization, coronary angioplasty, cardiac electrophysiology, CT scanning, magnetic resonance imaging, color-flow Doppler echocardiography, laser lithotripsy, transesophogeal ultrasound, video endoscopy and more.
Along with our affiliate hospitals Petaluma Valley Hospital and Healdsburg Hospital, we account for one-half of Sonoma County's available hospital beds. More than 2,000 dedicated employees serve the community through our integrated network of inpatient, outpatient and outreach modalities.
The history of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange in Sonoma County has been one of community support. In return, the community has benefited from a wide array of medical "firsts." Our history, commitment, and vision is to continue to provide our community with the best in health care consistent with our values of Compassion, Dignity, Justice, Excellence and Integrity.
