Providence Health & Services is partnering with Adventures in Medicine because we share the view that life and medicine are adventures. At Providence we want to help physicians on the quest to find their perfect practice, and help our hospitals, medical groups and community partners across the West find their perfect physician. We recruit 300+ physicians each year, so we know from experience how powerful it can be for our patients when this perfect fit happens. Physicians who are passionate about their work help heal the world.
What is your adventure in medicine?
Our adventure in medicine is fundamentally about healing, body, mind and spirit. It can best be summarized in the Mission of service that inspired our founders more than 150 years ago: “As people of Providence, we reveal God’s love for all, especially the poor and vulnerable, through our compassionate service.”
We are an integrated, not-for-profit health system with a presence in diverse communities across Alaska, California, Montana, Oregon and Washington. We have around 9,000 physicians on our medical staff, 1,200 physicians in our own Providence Medical Group, and more than 50,000 employees, or “people of Providence.” We operate world-class heart, cancer and brain centers, 27 hospitals, two children’s hospitals, and ambulatory clinics from Anchorage, Alaska, to the South Bay of Los Angeles. Our president and CEO is a physician, as are many of our top executives, and we have a Physician Leadership Development program to help new and experienced leaders bring the voice of the physician to everything we do. With our dedicated workforce, strong physician culture and long-standing Mission of service, we have enormous power to heal.
