The Department of Medicine provides research, teaching and clinical services related to the nature, cause and prevention of adult diseases at three sites: St. Paul's Hospital, Mount St. Joseph Hospital, and Holy Family Hospital. We are the largest clinical Department at Providence Health Care and we consist of two hundred and twenty one provisional and active members in eighteen academic divisions: AIDS, Allergy and Immunology, Cardiology, Critical Care, Dermatology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, General Internal Medicine, Geriatric Medicine, Hematology, Infectious Diseases, Nephrology, Neurology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Respiratory Medicine, and Rheumatology.
The Department of Medicine at Providence Health Care has a proud tradition of excellence in clinical care, research, and education.
Guided by Providence Health Care’s principle “How You Want to Be Treated”, the members of the Department of Medicine are committed to providing the highest possible standard of care for patients, advancing excellence in medical education; and fostering a culture of discovery in all of our activities to undertake and support cutting edge health research.
We recognize our role in a larger academic health system and we will work collaboratively with our partners, peers, and employees, emphasizing an open, dynamic and enlightened environment where diversity, innovation, and passion, are recognized as invaluable components of our mission to best serve patients, students, research, and the community.
