About Providence: Healing the Mind, Body and Spirit
Providence is the longest continuously operating hospital in Washington, DC. Our strengths in medicine, surgery, and diagnostics distinguish us as a major metropolitan hospital. And as a community hospital, we are committed to a full continuity of inpatient and outpatient programs that encourage health maintenance, prevention, and education.
We strongly believe that everybody deserves healthcare, and we give special attention to persons who are poor and vulnerable - those who are most in need. We believe our Catholic health ministry improves the health of individuals and of our community, with compassion and justice.
That's the way we've operated since 1861.
As a proud member of Ascension Health, a Catholic, mission-focused organization, and the nation's largest non-profit health system, we are defined as much by our values as by the healthcare we provide. It is our faith that drives us. It is our spirit and commitment to medical excellence that nourishes wellness and saves lives.
