Community Health Investment

Providence Saint John’s Health Center serves Santa Monica and Los Angeles County’s Westside communities and has earned a reputation for clinical excellence and award-winning care in a compassionate and tranquil healing environment. Founded by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth in 1942, who in 2014 passed its sponsorship to Providence Health & Services, Providence Saint John’s is rooted in the Catholic health care tradition, which is devoted to providing leading-edge medicine with unwavering compassion and personalized care. Providence St. John’s seeks to create healthier communities by investing in community benefit programs, with an emphasis on the poor and vulnerable.

Today, Providence Saint John’s is a nationally recognized 266-bed hospital with physicians, nurses, volunteers and support staff who work as a team to provide the best possible medical care to its patients and the community. In line with both its Catholic Mission and its responsibilities as a non-profit health care provider, Providence Saint John’s commitment to the poor and vulnerable includes partnerships with many outstanding Westside nonprofits who deliver vital services for those living in poverty. The People Concern, Saint Joseph Center, Venice Family Clinic, and WISE & Healthy Aging are just a few examples of community partners who are serving the community in their area of expertise.

Community Health Needs Assessments and Community Health Implementation Plans
