New Progressive Care Unit
The new Progressive Care Unit will treat medical and surgical patients whose needs are not serious enough for the Intensive Care Unit, but unstable enough for the regular hospital floor. It will nearly double the amount of intermediate-care beds. That helps move patients along their care path quicker, reduces wait times and shortens the length of stay.

A donation makes a difference. Here’s proof.


Now, more than ever, our community needs Providence St. Joseph Hospital and compassionate neighbors like you.
