Mission Statement

As people of Providence, we reveal God's love for all, especially the poor and vulnerable, through our compassionate service.

Description

Providence Health International provides opportunities to learn, serve, and contribute internationally and locally - leveraging the resources and talents of our health care organization to improve and promote global health. Compassionate service to all has been a part of the Providence Mission since the Sisters of Providence began their work in Montreal nearly 170 years ago. Our main focus includes:

  • Collecting and shipping medical supply donations internationally and locally.
  • Supporting Providence employees on medical service trips with needed medical supplies and equipment.
  • Working to create sustainable change for those who are poor and vulnerable in Guatemala.
  • Coordinating response in times of natural disasters.

Our Medical Supply Recovery Organization (MSRO):

Each year, U.S. health care facilities throw away thousands of tons of unused or recyclable medical products and equipment. Providence is helping to turn a problem of waste versus need into a solution of health care resources for economically developing countries. Our Providence medical supply warehouse recovers and donates about 20 tons of supplies to more than 25 countries in need every year.
