Ascension Providence Foundation

Since 1854, Providence Hospital, under the spiritual leadership of the Daughters of Charity, has provided quality service and care to the citizens of the Mobile area. Our mission is to work among the sick and needy, and the Daughters are committed to administering care, support and love to their patients.

Through continued guidance, Ascension Providence has grown from a modest 60-bed facility to a 277-acre health care complex in west Mobile. Ascension Providence provides services encompassing the realm of medical knowledge such as outpatient surgery, radiation therapy, laser surgery, and diagnostic and invasive cardiology. However, to continue to offer the highest level of technology, donations from friends and supporters are needed.

Ascension Providence Foundation supports its mission through the presentation of two annual fundraising community events.
