Earlier this summer Providence Health System announced plans to better align the services it provides with the evolving and unmet health needs of District of Columbia residents. To dedicate the time and resources needed to pursue a transformational model of healthcare, Providence will transition out of all services, except for Carroll Manor and primary-care related services on December 14, 2018.
Providence Health System remains committed to its Mission to serve all persons, especially those most in need. Providence will continue to be present in the District of Columbia as we work to realize a new vision of healthcare that will keep health at the center, remove the obstacles and barriers to a healthy life for all, and better meet the needs of a changing and growing community.
The most recent DC Community Health Needs Assessment identified mental and behavioral health, place-based care, care coordination and health literacy as the key priorities in the District. These and the social determinants of health beyond traditional healthcare services are areas where the transformed Providence can make a significant impact in the lives and well-being of members of the community.
Providence will continue to work with community leaders, elected officials, the DC Hospital Association, and other healthcare institutions and partners through this important transformation.Providence is committed to its Mission and continuing to serve the DC community.
