The Providence Brand of Care
April 15, 2012
Each of our five award-winning hospitals each have their own unique specialties, but all provide the same Providence brand of quality and compassionate care. We work together to ensure our patients are matched with the best services for their needs.
At Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, for example, we have experts in deep brain stimulation, a state-of-the art treatment for those with movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease. Among Providence Little Company of Mary San Pedro’s signature services are its renowned Rehabcentre, the South Bay’s only acute rehabilitation facility, and its Stroke Center, the first Advanced Primary Stroke Center in the South Bay.
Providence Southern California not only provides for your family’s health care needs from birth to end-of-life, but our physicians, nurses and clinicians also are encouraged to participate in research projects, many of which have led to new and better practices. Michele Del Vicario, M.D., a cardiologist at Providence Little Company of Mary Torrance, is developing a protocol to reduce hospital readmission rates for congestive heart failure patients. And our new Providence Nursing Institute encourages nurses to conduct research programs to improve patient care.
Information about all our services is available through our Health Resource Center. By calling 1-888-HEALING (432-5464), you can get a referral to a physician, as well as information on health services and community resources.
