    FOUNDED

    1856

    OUR MISSION

    Mission: As people of Providence, we reveal God's love for all, especially the poor and vulnerable, through our compassionate service.

    Vision: Together, we answer the call of every person we serve: Know me, care for me, ease my way.

    OUR HISTORY

    When the Sisters arrived in the Pacific Northwest in 1856, they came to answer a call for help from a new pioneer community. What they found were many communities in need of service, and so with dedication to the Mission and collaboration with like-minded partners, their ministry grew to what is now a five-state health system. 

    Providence Health & Services continues a tradition of caring that the Sisters of Providence began more than 158 years ago. The cornerstone of our Mission is to provide compassionate care that is accessible for all – especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

    FOUNDED

    1910

    OUR MISSION

    Improve the health and well-being of each person we serve.

    OUR HISTORY

    Since our founding in 1910, Swedish has been at the forefront of patient safety and care quality. When founder Dr. Nils Johanson arrived in Seattle more than a century ago, he quickly discovered there were no hospitals that lived up to his standards for care quality and sterile technique. And so he created one. Dr. Johanson's legacy and leadership live on today at Swedish, where our highest priority continues to be on quality and safety for every patient.

  • The Everett Clinic

    TEC Photo

    FOUNDED

    In 1924, four private practice physicians joined together to combine their knowledge and resources to benefit their patients. These founding fathers of The Everett Clinic were innovators, acting creatively to improve patient care. Their heritage continues today.

    OUR MISSION

    Our Core Purpose is to make lives better together through health and healing. We do that by remaining true to our three core values: 1) We do what is right for each patient, 2) We provide an enriching and supportive workplace and 3) Our team focuses on value: service, quality and cost.

    OUR HISTORY

    Everett was in the midst of a post-World War I boom when the Clinic was founded. When mill workers prospered the community and its physicians also thrived. The new clinic survived the Great Depression due to foresight in contracting with local mills to cover workers’ medical care. Today, we see this spirit of innovation and continuous improvement is still very much a part of our culture at The Everett Clinic. We are working to improve quality and make healthcare more affordable. Our priority is to do what is right for each patient. Our focus on prevention—disease management, standardized work and seeing patients when they want to be seen—all combine to improve patient care while also reducing cost. This model of value-added care, incorporated into every aspect of our business, has put The Everett Clinic on the map as one of the most innovative and high quality healthcare providers in the country.

  • Pacific Medical Centers

    FOUNDED

    1933

    OUR MISSION

    Our mission is to provide respectful, high-quality, patient-focused healthcare to each person and to the communities we serve.

    OUR HISTORY

    Pacific Medical Centers has an amazing history! Our roots stretch back to a Marine Hospital serving 1930s Merchant Seamen; in 1951, PacMed™ became the first U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) Hospital in the area. Our distinctive, orange Beacon Hill tower has been part of Seattle’s skyline since 1933.

    Following our initial mission to care for seamen, our focus expanded to include military retirees, their dependents and active-duty family members; Native Americans; and low-income, uninsured people who could not afford to pay for care. In the 1970s, PacMed began treating numerous refugees as they arrived in our communities.

    Today, we serve people in the greater Puget Sound area from every walk of life. Our unique focus has helped us forge strong bonds with those we serve. In fact, we credit our existence today to the massive community effort mounted in 1981 to save PacMed from closure. The result was a shift in control from the federal government to a local public development authority. In 2003, PacMed transitioned again to become a private, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.

    Today, PacMed is a nonprofit, multi-specialty medical group. In 2014, we formed a secular affiliation with Providence Health & Services and transitioned our hospital care to Swedish Medical Center. Together, we are committed to increasing patients’ access to care, reducing costs and improving our patients’ experience. We look forward to what our collaborative future holds.
