A Welcome From Our Leadership

Welcome to Providence. I’m glad you’ve stopped by, and I hope you’ll stay a while to get to know us better.

Let me tell you my own Providence story. After a motorcycle accident left me injured and needing short-term rehabilitation, I chose Providence for my care. At that point, I was already hired to work in the organization, but none of the staff knew that. I came prepared to have a list of all the things they needed to improve. but that list never started. I received exceptional care during two weeks of rehab from staff that had no idea I was about to become their manager. So when I say that I can vouch for Providence healthcare, it's coming from knowing exactly the kind of care you'll receive.

We are honored to provide peaceful and compassionate care to everyone in our community, and I am honored to be part of such a genuinely caring company with a reputation of caring for older adults for over a century. I believe in our mission, and I am proud of what we do. 

While I know you’ll get a good idea of Providence from these web pages, I’d love for you to come for a visit so you can see for yourself how much we can offer you and your family.  We treat the mind, body, and spirit here. We have an excellent nursing team that adapts to each patient’s needs, and we help avoid rehospitalizations with our fantastic rehabilitation program. We also have a full-time chaplain to provide a wide range of spiritual services. This excellent care is driven by our mission, which is why being a non-for-profit is such an important aspect of who we are. When you visit, you'll see the Providence visit.

Thanks for stopping by!
