PSJH is a national, Catholic, not-for-profit health system, comprising a

diverse family of organizations and driven by a belief that health care is a

human right. Rooted in the founding missions of the Sisters of Providence

and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange, courageous women ahead of their time

who brought health care and other social services to the American West when it

was still a rugged, untamed frontier, PSJH is guided by a singular commitment

to improve the health of all. Now, as the health care landscape changes

dramatically, they draw upon their pioneering and compassionate spirit to plan

for the next century of health for a better world, especially for the poor and


PSJH uses their voice to

advocate for vulnerable populations and needed reforms in health care. They are

also pursuing innovative ways to transform health care by keeping people

healthy, and making our services more convenient, accessible and affordable for

all. In an increasingly uncertain world, they are committed to

high-quality, compassionate health care for everyone—regardless of coverage or

With a vision of creating

Since the 2016 merger of

Providence Health and St. Joseph Health, areas of focus have included

transformation, strengthening of its core, and growth; now, PSJH is undertaking

a number of innovative initiatives system-wide. The health system is

developing an institute model for specialty care across the seven states it

serves – a virtual network that links all of its care locations, solving gaps

in continuity of care for patients and creating a seamless experience for them

and their families. This model offers clinicians timely access to

best-practice findings, data, and reports, and offers patients quality, compassionate

care closer to home, with predictable costs and outcomes.

Key features of this

institute model include: patient navigation, concentration of

multidisciplinary clinical expertise, accelerated research and innovation, a

proprietary data repository for genomics, clinical experts from seven states

defining quality measures within disease types, a delivery system organized

around key treatment locations with best outcomes, a network that ensures that

patients have the right care at the right time in the right place, and a focus

on care close to home supported by digital technology. The goal is to

unify relevant services, resources, and expertise under six clinical

umbrellas: Musculoskeletal Institute, Neurosciences Institute, Digestive

Health Institute, Cancer Institute, Cardiovascular Institute, and Women and

Children’s Institute.

PSJH has extremely

attractive markets and well-positioned assets. Over the past several

years, the organization has pursued strategies to create the care delivery platform

of the future, and has made significant investments in innovation and systems,

with over six elite research investments, as well as investments in EMRs.

PSJH is working to bring health care into the digital and consumer age with the

goal of better serving patients and consumers, delivering care on their terms –

where, when, and how they want it. To achieve that goal, the health

system has formed three teams that work together to identify, pilot, and drive

the adoption of new technologies and business models. The Digital

Innovation Group actively builds software to support patients, consumers,

clinicians and technology partners; the Consumer Innovation Group creates

health-related businesses in areas such as women’s health, senior services, and

chronic disease, partnering closely with Providence employees and patients to

create new services and tools designed to support a patient’s ongoing health

between episodes of care; and Providence Ventures advances health care delivery

by funding technology innovations, working side-by-side with colleagues who are

actively building a digital platform to make it easier to collaborate with

early-stage companies.

Annual revenues are $25B and

growing. PSJH currently operates in seven states through 51 hospitals and

829 clinics where over 24,000 physicians serve over 13 million patients each
