Providence Medical Institute

Providence Medical Institute is a non-profit physician services organization with 200 providers across 32 medical offices, including seven urgent care centers. PMI physicians work closely with the six Providence medical centers from the South Bay to Santa Monica to the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys. Providence was the first health system in California to win Healthgrades’ Distinguished Hospital Award for all five hospitals evaluated for this accomplishment.

Even for those with insurance the cost for primary care may be out of reach. PMI and the Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance have partnered in the South Bay to offer a state-of-the-art primary care clinic specifically open to the uninsured or under-insured adult on a cash-pay basis. In addition to exceptional care, patients have access to healthcare counseling for complex health conditions such as diabetes.

Providence is committed to quality compassionate care for all, honoring the core values of the founding Sister of Providence and living their 150-year-old mission: to serve the poor and vulnerable.

    Our history

    Founded in 1996, Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Institute began when 27 physicians practicing independently in the community entered into a partnership with Providence Little Company of Mary to create a not-for-profit medical foundation. As part of the partnership, each physician in the Medical Institute committed to meeting the health needs of the community while embracing the Mission of the Sisters of Little Company of Mary. In 1999, the Sisters of Little Company of Mary joined with the Sisters of Providence. Together, under a co-sponsorship, they have adopted the Providence mission and core values.

    Our future

    This is an exciting time for PMI. As we look to the future, PMI is expanding care to our South Bay and Valley communities by adding services, locations and extending hours to make access to primary and specialty care more available. In order to accomplish this, PMI is engaged in three major initiatives. First, PMI is growing to meet community needs. This means expanding the number and types of physicians, and adding more locations throughout the South Bay and San Fernando Valley areas, as well as services available within PMI clinic sites.

    Secondly, PMI is doubling its efforts to provide clinical excellence in the care delivered. We will achieve this goal by adding highly-skilled physicians and providers, requiring ongoing medical education and training to ensure physicians are up to date, advancing the use of care teams to make additional services available, such as our Senior Wellness Program at Axminster Medical Group, and using evidence-based medicine (research) to drive medical decisions.

    Finally, PMI is significantly expanding its use of technology. While current electronic medical records allow for instant access to patient records and many other advantages, new functions create the opportunity to manage a patient's health more proactively, share information across providers and with the patient, allow for patients to interact with physicians remotely and other major advances. We look forward to partnering with you for your future healthcare needs.
