Founded as Providence Hospitals in 1938 by the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, Providence's two free standing full-service hospitals and numerous satellite practices maintain a true devotion to advanced clinical expertise and unmatched compassion. On February 2, 2016, Providence became part of the LifePoint Health network, and shortly thereafter, changed its name to Providence Health to better represent the full complement of its services. Driven by quality, compassion, and Christ, Providence treats the whole person- body, mind, and spirit.
Providence Health is one of the best hospitals in the State of South Carolina, according to U.S. News & World Report, and it is, once again, the only hospital in Columbia to make the Best of South Carolina Hospital list. In addition, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services awarded Providence Health a 4-star rating. For more information about our national awards and recognitions, click here.
Providence Health ranks the highest in Columbia for Patient Experience. The staff is focused on making sure our guests' stay is comfortable, and that our patients feel heard, and their needs are met.
