Who We Are

Our Vision for Whole Person Care

  • Every patient will have personalized plans of care and will receive treatments that are consistent with their individual goals and priorities.

  • Every adult patient will have a trusted decision maker or advance directive in their electronic medical record.

  • Every seriously ill patient will have at least one goals-of-care conversation prior to major surgeries or intensive medical treatments.

  • Every patient at every age and stage of life will be routinely assessed to address their physical, functional, emotional, social and spiritual well-being.

  • Every seriously ill patient will have access to specialty palliative care.

  • Every patient will receive ethical care consistent with best-known processes and practices.

The Institute for Human Caring is guided by Providence’s core values of Compassion, Dignity, Justice, Excellence, Integrity, as well as our Promise to answer each patient’s call to “know me, care for me, ease my way.”
