World-Class Health Care Close to Home
Providence is proud to be one of the largest, most advanced medical centers in the state. As the primary regional medical center for Northwest Washington, we serve residents of Snohomish, Skagit, Whatcom, Island and San Juan counties and provide a range of critical, often life-sustaining services. Our presence in the community is centered by our two hospital campuses—Colby and Pacific. We also have 55 health clinics located across northwest Washington.
We provide high-quality, compassionate care from beginning to end of life. Providence Everett was named a 2019-2020 “Best Regional Hospital” in the Puget Sound by U.S. News & World Report. We are continually recognized for quality and excellence, while never losing focus on our mission to provide care for all, especially the poor and vulnerable. In fact, we are one of the top providers of charity care in the state.
Providence Everett is part of Providence St. Joseph Health, the fourth largest not-for-profit health system in the nation. As a member of the Providence family, we provide a local ‘front door’ to the nation’s most advanced care—giving patients system-wide access to renowned physicians and the most sophisticated clinical services that modern health care has to offer.
Why Healthcare Philanthropy is so Important
Providence Everett is dedicated to creating health care access for everyone. No one is turned away from care, regardless of their ability to pay. Living out this mission of service, compassion and healing is our first priority. At the same time, we want to invest in the innovative medicine and extraordinary people that keep our hospital on the leading edge and best equipped to save and enhance lives.
Philanthropy is often called the “margin of excellence” because dollars raised through generous donors make up the gap between where we are today and the excellence in health care that we’re pursuing. Watch this short video to see the crucial role you play in helping create A Greater Providence.
History of Advancing Medical Care in Our Community
Providing our community with outstanding care has been part of the ethos of Providence Everett since our founding more than a century ago. Our mission demands it. We have always sought top physicians and nurses, high quality facilities, advanced technology and outstanding clinical programs that deliver effective care.
We accelerated this notion in the early 2000s when we began to implement a major capital initiative to build state-of-the-art facilities—facilities that aligned with the level of excellence provided by our clinicians and programs. The objective: to deliver world-class care to the community in the most advanced medical facilities available anywhere.
About Providence General Foundation
Over the past two decades Providence General Foundation has facilitated the unique partnership between hospital and community to ensure the best possible care for our community. By cultivating the charitable spirit of our generous supporters, we have provided funding to upgrade and modernize many of our existing clinical areas that serve as cornerstones in our delivery of care to the community:
- Providence Cymbaluk Medical Tower: The 12-story, 680,000 square foot Cymbaluk Medical Tower was built to meet the growing needs of our community. The $500-million tower, located on our Colby Campus, was opened in 2011 and provides modern patient rooms, an expansive Emergency Department, surgical and interventional suites and diagnostic imaging.
- Providence Regional Cancer Partnership: In 2007, we opened a $62 million, world-class cancer facility on our Colby Campus to provide a full range of outpatient cancer care services. This facility is at the center of an historic collaboration between local medical groups—to provide an array of advanced services by our region’s top cancer specialists. Services include chemotherapy, radiation oncology, clinical research, integrative medicine and counseling. ?
- Pavilion for Women & Children: The culmination of a $56 million investment brought a state-of-the-art facility for the care of women, infants and children on our Pacific Campus. The Pavilion, which opened in 2002, provides a full complement of services in one location, including a family maternity center, Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, children’s neuro-developmental center, a comprehensive breast center and the Providence Boyden Family Autism Center.
“Providence is a valuable and life-saving community asset. That is why I invest my time and money to ensure its growth and success.”
