Providence Remembers Gerry Frank

Providence remembers Gerry Frank

Oregon, America, and yes, Providence, have lost a great friend: Gerry Frank.

Others will speak of his business and political wisdom or his travel expertise - but at Providence, for more than 50 years, Gerry Frank was a dedicated supporter and advisor. From building a new pavilion or chapel to providing guest housing, Gerry's touch was evident in so many ways here. 

Gerry had a special concern for children, and because of that, Providence launched The Gerry Frank Center for Children’s Care at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.  The center features a full range of family medical services, including children’s surgeries and procedures. The young patients receiving care there today might not know Gerry Frank personally, but when they look around at the bright rooms, the relaxing, comforting clouds on the ceiling, and hold their "Gerry bears" - they know that someone cared about them a lot.

That someone was Gerry Frank. 

Providence sends condolences, prayers, warm thoughts and wonderful memories to his family, friends and all those who benefit from his commitment to health care.
