A Message from the Market Chief Executive Officer
Providence Health is a two-hospital Catholic healthcare system with multiple physician practices and ancillary services located in and around the beautiful capitol city of Columbia, South Carolina. Providence Health is a well-known leader in cardiovascular and orthopedic services. Our promise of quality care and our commitment to the patient’s experience affects every step of the continuum of care. Careful thought goes into each patient interaction, whether providing healthy meals that taste delicious, purchasing new beds that function with ease, or a kind nurse getting a blanket for a guest.
As the only faith-based health care system in Columbia, we offer something else, too. We offer an extension of Christ’s healing ministry. As said in the Prayer of St. Theresa of Avila:
“Christ has no body now on earth but yours; no hands but yours; no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ must look out on the world. Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which He is to bless His people.”
We take very seriously the belief that our hands are doing His healing work, and when someone comes to our facilities for care, they are a sacred being in a sacred place. In this way, we have been providing quality, compassionate health care to South Carolinians for over 78 years.
Something about this presence of faith makes our hospitals feel different. I felt it when I first came here, and I hear it over and over again from others who note the same. If you haven’t been here yourself, I invite you to come, see, feel, and experience the Providence difference.
