Saint John's Magazine Spring 2018

April 10, 2018

Message from the Foundation

Last fall we joined with our employees, friends and neighbors to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Providence Saint John’s Health Center. In 2018 and beyond we continue to map out the future of our cherished hospital, and we do so with a commitment to maintain the spirit, values and traditions that have molded our identity and reputation.

The founding Sisters gave us the blueprint for compassionate health care and taught us the importance of living our values. Although the Sisters have passed the torch on to lay people, we remain just as passionate about our Mission. The Sisters who remain with us today continually remind us of why they came here: to provide us with Missionbased, faith-based Catholic care.

This issue of Saint John’s magazine gives us a glimpse into the future. Our path ahead is exciting and full of promise. But the need to hold true to our values is more important than ever. As medicine increasingly moves into the world of high technology, we cling to a belief in the human touch—in personalized, humanistic care. As our population ages and diversifies, we seek to help everyone who comes through our doors and assist them in navigating an increasingly complex health care environment.

You—our friends and supporters—make many of our improvements in technologies and facilities possible. But you also remind us that we stand out because of our people, our beliefs and our traditions. The type of care that Saint John’s provides will never be out of vogue. Thank you for your generosity and contributions to our cause.
