Providence St. Joseph Health puts muscle behind mental health
Providence Health & Services and St. Joseph Health have combined to
create Providence St. Joseph Health, one of the nation's largest Catholic
nonprofit health care systems, the systems said on July 6. On the day
of the announcement, the new system committed to an initial $100 million
investment to be a catalyst for improved mental health care in the United States.
Dr. Rod Hochman, president and chief executive of Providence St. Joseph
Health, said, "It really felt very, very natural for us to be together."
He said the combination makes strategic sense, as both systems are West
Coast health care systems, yet hadn't overlapped geographically. Both
shared similar missions, visions and values; both were committed to health
care innovation, providing excellent clinical care and service to their
communities, he said.
