Patients and Visitors
Providence Hood River is committed to providing the very best health care to the Columbia Gorge communities we serve – in four counties, two states and on both banks of the Columbia River. From primary care physicians to specialized teams and clinical caregivers, our medical staff provides the care you need, close to home. Other services sponsored by Providence include our health clinics, health plans, home health services, senior living options and a mobile health unit.
We are dedicated to providing high quality care for all patients as they journey through life. Our providers specialize in diagnosing and treating illnesses and injuries, with an emphasis on preventive care to help keep patients healthy.
Providence is proud to serve every member of our community, from the newest patients in our Family Birth Center to families seeking adult day care or respite care. We offer a variety of specialty services such as surgery, orthopedics, rheumatology, allergy testing and cardiac care. And as a not-for-profit health care ministry, we are honored to provide for the needs of our communities – especially the poor and vulnerable.
Whether we're helping you stay healthy, delivering your child, caring for you or offering support services, Providence continues our 153-year Mission of compassion and excellence in care – one person, one patient, one family at a time. Our goal is to know you, care for you and ease your way.
