Located in Santa Monica, California, Providence Saint John’s Health Center is recognized nationally and internationally for providing quality cancer, orthopedic, heart and neurosciences care. Saint John’s is also home to the world-renowned John Wayne Cancer Institute, dedicated to clinical research and medical advancements in cancer care.
The roots planted by Providence Health & Services nearly 70 years ago in Southern California run deep and have spread over the decades to bring all facets of health care to communities stretching from the arid valleys of northern Los Angeles County to the shore.
Anchored by five award-winning comprehensive medical centers, Providence Health & Services, Southern California, provides a full spectrum of care that includes not only leading-edge diagnostics and treatment, but outpatient health centers, the well-regarded Providence Medical Institute physician group, numerous outreach programs and clinics serving those in need, hospice and home care and even our own Providence High School, a highly competitive, independent Catholic, college-preparatory school.
Providence is committed to quality compassionate care for all, honoring the core values of the founding Sister of Providence and living their 150-year-old mission: to serve the poor and vulnerable.
Throughout Los Angeles County and beyond, we are known for outstanding programs in cancer, cardiology, neurosciences, orthopedics, women’s services, emergency and trauma care, pediatrics and neonatal intensive care. We continue to add services and technology to meet the needs of our ever changing communities.
With more than 12,000 employees, physicians and volunteers, we remain committed to our core values of respect, compassion, justice, excellence and stewardship.
Providence is driven to invest in the latest equipment, whether it’s the most advanced radiation system for the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, or the new ventilators for tiny premature infants in the neonatal intensive care unit at Providence Tarzana Medical Center. New technology at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center Torrance has improved patient safety by preventing human error when prescribing and administering drug dosages. In addition, a new 138-bed expansion just opened at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center to meet a growing need in the northern reaches of the region.
Providence is dedicated to quality and compassionate care and to building for the future.
Each year more hospitals and countries are getting involved in medical tourism and international patient services, creating more competition. Healthcare providers, hospitals and systems need to invest in creating a sustainable global brand and leverage new domestic, regional and international business relationships to increase their number of patients.
