Working toward health equity for all

We believe health is a human right. Every person deserves the chance to live their healthiest life. But we recognize that long-standing inequities and systemic injustices exist in the world. This has led to health disparities among communities that have been marginalized because of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, religion or socioeconomic status.

Here’s how we’re working toward health equity for all .

Our pledge

At Providence, we recognize that long-standing inequities have led to health disparities.

Health equity statement

Progress report

“In today’s diverse and dynamic world, DEI is a smart business imperative for any major employer. But at the Providence family of organizations, it goes far deeper. As our value of dignity so poignantly reminds us: We encourage and celebrate the gifts in one another. We respect the inherent dignity and worth of every individual. We recognize each interaction as a sacred encounter.

- Rod Hochman, President and CEO of Providence
