A Letter From Our CEO

On behalf of myself, the senior management team and staff of Providence Community Health Centers, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our provider website. Since opening our doors nearly 50 years ago, Providence Community Health Centers has evolved into a not-for-profit healthcare provider that works continuously to fulfill its mission to improve the health and quality of life of the individuals and communities we serve in Rhode Island.

Every day our team of healthcare providers, work together to make our community a better place to live and work. With ten health centers in Rhode Island, including primary care, OB/GYN, pediatrics, optomology, dentistry, and behavioral health services throughout our centers. Our mission is to offer you a wide array of exceptional products and services to meet all of our healthcare needs through our outstanding quality service. The many changes in the healthcare industry over the past decade have left consumers and physicians feeling confused, disempowered, and believing that they must constantly choose between quality, affordability and access when making healthcare choices.

The Providence Community Health Centers network has recruited some of the area’s most prestigious physicians, hospitals, and other providers and empowered them to provide the quality care our patients deserve with a minimum of administrative burdens or clinical restrictions. Simply put, we have asked them to focus on their patients, while we handle the administration.

Our provider network, state-of-the-art information technology and a dedicated team of health care professionals allow us to deliver advanced customized healthcare solutions to all of our healthcare partners. I am confident you will find our new microsite rich with information about us and all the products and services we offer.

Thanks again for visiting our website!
