Providence Health & Services has a long history of serving Alaska, beginning when the Sisters of Providence first brought health care to Nome in 1902 during the Gold Rush. This pioneering spirit set the standard for modern health care in Alaska and formed the foundation for Providence's growth as the state's leading health care provider.
Today, Providence serves Alaskans in five communities - Anchorage, Matanuska-Susitna Valley, Kodiak Island, Seward, Soldotna and Valdez. Providence Health & Services Alaska is the state's largest private employer with more than 4,000 full and part-time employees working for the organization statewide.
In partnership with physicians and health care providers throughout the state, we provide a lifetime of care for Alaskans of all ages, as do our sister institutions and facilities in Washington, Oregon, California, and Montana.
