Providence money to benefit local areas

Providence Health Care has announced that it provided almost $30

million to benefit residents of the San Fernando and Santa Clarita

Valleys in 2004.


The money was made possible through a program called the Emilie

Gamelin Program for Patient Assistance, named after the founder of

the Sisters of Providence. Much of it was spent on free medical care

for people with low incomes. Funds also benefited programs like


tattoo removal, school nurse programs and cancer outreach.

The company served nearly 100,000 San Fernando and Santa Clarita

residents in 2004 through these programs, and since 1999 its

community outreach spending has grown by 83 percent.

Program, call 1-800-HEALING or visit Providence’s website at
