Providence Society


That’s the idea behind everything we do here at Ascension Providence Hospital. We work together as caregivers to heal our patients. We work together with our community to build a better future for southeastern Michigan. And together, with our committed contributors, we can continue to build upon our vision: to deliver the highest quality patient-care experience, every day, everywhere, for everyone.

Maintaining and expanding a high level of capabilities at our locations is vital. Ascension Providence Hospital, Southfield Campus, a 365-bed hospital, is the largest employer in Southfield. For more than 100 years, the hospital has been a premier provider of compassionate and leading-edge healthcare in southeastern Michigan. Ascension Providence Hospital, Novi Campus, our 264-bed “hospital of tomorrow”—has the latest medical technology in an environment that fully promotes healing of the body, mind and spirit. Our donors join a caring, selfless family with a rock-solid foundation. Both the Southfield and Novi sites are community- and faith-based teaching hospitals. We are part of Ascension, the largest Catholic and not-for-profit health system in the country.


Providence Health Foundation

Behind every good health system is an amazing support base. Ours is the Providence Health Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to enhance the delivery of spiritually centered, holistic care to all persons—with special attention to the poor and vulnerable—through our hospitals, programs and services. Seamless coordination helps make this mission a reality. Providence Health Foundation volunteers and staff work together with the physicians, nurses and associates of Ascension Providence Hospital with impressive results.

The effects are felt far beyond hospital walls. Providence Health Foundation supports philanthropic activities and inspires community collaborations that focus on building a sound capital base, securing innovative technology and funding programs that address the healthcare needs of our communities.
