Non Discrimination Policy

As a recipient of Federal financial assistance, Providence Medical Center does not exclude, deny benefits to, or otherwise discriminate against any person on the ground of race, color, or national origin, sex, or gender identity including sex stereotyping, or on the basis of disability or age in admission to, participation in, or receipt of the services and benefits under any of its programs and activities, whether carried out by Providence Medical Center directly or through a contractor or any other entity with which Providence Medical Center arranges to carry out its programs and activities.

If you are concerned about something whether it is your care, your room, your meals, your testing schedule, your visitors or anything else - please let us know without delay; and we will try to remedy the situation immediately. Be assured that you can speak to your care givers in confidence. If you would rather not talk about your problem with your nurse, you may meet with the supervisor or manager on your unit for a confidential discussion of your concern. Please be assured that the presentation of a complaint or concern will not compromise your treatment. Our goal is to provide healthcare that is supportive of patient and family wishes, recognizing that situations and decision-making can at times cause conflicts in the course of healthcare delivery.
