Our Approach


What do we want to achieve?

We need a robust 7-year strategic plan (2019 - 2026) that clearly sets out what PHC will look like in the future. It must is driven by our Mission, Vision and Values, and it must bring value to those we serve, our people and the health care community at large.


Why now?

Right now we have a unique confluence of new leadership, significant infrastructure and technology projects, and an historic organizational birthday — 125 years old! These three converging opportunities present an ideal time to take a collective breath and reflect on where PHC is heading. Now is the perfect time to plan the work we want to do in the next seven years, as well as how we want to do it.


Why is this work important and necessary?

We are building a shared roadmap to the Providence of 2026.

As with any journey, there are a number of ways to get to a destination. This work is about identifying the goals that will guide our chosen path to achieving Providence’s vision. While there are always a number of routes, this is about determining the Providence way to arrive.

The way forward for Providence can’t be achieved in isolation. The only way to pave our roadmap to success, together, is by asking the right questions and listening to the answers, dreaming big and putting even bigger action behind it. That also means being true to who we are in a way that brings value to those we serve, and is meaningful to all of us.

Then we’ll know that we got it right.


How we’ll get there?

Our engagement will take place for six weeks this fall (October 29 to December 15), and will involve our clinical, allied health, and medical staff, researchers, volunteers, foundation, corporate and administrative staff, those we serve in our acute facilities and residential homes, well as the PHC Board, Society and senior leaders.

We’re committed to designing a number of ways—e.g. open forums, focus groups, small group discussions, “pop-up” sessions (with candy!), online engagement— to connect with, and listen to, as many voices and ideas as possible within the window of time that we have to do formal engagement.

Heading into engagement we are mindful of your already-full plates and the questions that have already been asked through other engagement activities. We have done a lot of upfront work to ensure we’ve analyzed and reviewed past surveys and reports so that we’re able to jump right in, start an informed conversation and make the very most of the time you have to give to this process.


Here's to planning an amazing journey to 2026, together.
