About Us

Providence Saint John’s Health Center has been serving the Santa Monica and westside Los Angeles county communities since 1942, and since that time has earned a reputation for clinical excellence and award-winning care in a compassionate and tranquil healing environment.

Today, Providence Saint John’s is a nationally renowned 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. Providence Saint John’s provides the latest in diagnostic technology and specialty care with a strong commitment to its core service lines: heart and vascular care, oncology, orthopedics and women’s health. Saint John’s also is home to the world-renowned John Wayne Cancer Institute, dedicated to clinical research and medical advancements in cancer care.

Providence Saint John’s reputation for academically-based care guided by research and evidence-based medicine is due to the commitment to excellence by our physicians, nurses and caregivers. Our cancer surgeons care for patients in the Cancer Center and hold faculty positions at the John Wayne Cancer Institute and other teaching institutions in the community. Nearly every core service line at Providence Saint John’s participates in research or clinical trials.

Founded by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, 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. In line with both its Catholic Mission and its responsibilities as a non-profit health care provider, Providence Saint John’s seeks to create healthier communities by investing in community benefit programs, with an emphasis on the poor and vulnerable.

Providence Saint John’s continually has achieved top ratings and distinguished hospital awards for clinical excellence and patient safety by the nation’s leading accreditation organizations, such as Healthgrades, The Joint Commission and Leapfrog Group. Within the past decade, Providence Saint John’s has received multiple acclamations by these organizations for a variety of services – including cardiac care, coronary intervention, critical care, orthopedics, pulmonary care, joint replacement, neurosurgery, and women’s health.

Through the dedication and collaborative efforts of the community, friends, patrons, physicians, nurses, staff and volunteers, Providence Saint John’s continues its world-class tradition established more than 70 years ago by providing breakthrough medicine in an environment of inspired healing.
