Mission
As people of Providence, we reveal God’s love for all, especially the poor and vulnerable, through our compassionate service.
Goals
To provide expert, compassionate care for individuals as they face the end of life. Together, we answer the call of every person we serve: Know me, care for me, ease my way.

– PROGRAM OVERVIEW –

At Providence Hospice of the Gorge, we understand that each family is special. We tailor our care to the specific medical, spiritual, emotional and physical needs of each patient and family during end of life experiences.

Led by a physician medical director, our nurses, hospice aids, social workers, chaplains and volunteers form a team to care for each patient. Services are provided in the patient’s home, no matter where that home is: a private residence,
an assisted living community, an adult care home or a residential or intermediate care community.

For over 30 years, it has been our honor to serve patients and families in eight counties in Oregon and Washington.

•Complementary therapies:
