With approximately 16,000 caregivers, a medical group practice with more than 1,200 providers and 10 medical centers, PeaceHealth serves both urban and rural communities throughout the Northwest.
In 1890, the Sisters of St Joseph of Peace founded what has become PeaceHealth. The Sisters shared expertise and transferred wisdom from one medical center to another, always finding the best way to serve the unmet need for healthcare in their communities.
Today, PeaceHealth is the legacy of the founding Sisters and continues with a spirit of respect , stewardship, collaboration and social justice in fulfilling its Mission.
