SWCHC and Providence Health System enjoy a multifaceted relationship. Providence and SWCHC has a contract regarding referring patients from St. Vincent’s emergency room to SWCHC. Providence also supports SWCHC with regular generous contributions. We are very fortunate to have partners like Providence.
