Providence Health Care invests $141.7 million in charity and support in 2017

Answering a long tradition of giving to those most in need, Providence Health Care invested more than $141.7 million in charity and support for local communities in 2017. This investment addresses many of the most urgent health and social issues impacting our communities.

PHC' 2017 community benefit investment included:
- $13.2 million in free and low-cost care for our communities' most vulnerable;
- $14.9 million for medical education and research, including subsidizing medical residency programs;
- $7.1 million to subsidize important services such as the YWCA's Mobile Advocate program for survivors of domestic violence;
- $6.3 million for community health services, grants and donations; and - $100.2 million to cover shortfalls in Medicaid - the difference between the cost of care and what is paid for by state and federal government.

A major goal of Providence's 2017 community investment is funding more than medical care. In collaboration with others, Providence identifies and prioritizes social factors in the community that make a population healthy, such as education, housing and access to transportation and nutritious food. The intent is to focus on these issues 'upstream,' proactively helping communities to thrive and impacting the overall cost of care for all people.
