Providence Hospital and its multi-specialty physician network are ministries of Ascension Health, the nation’s largest Catholic and non-profit health system. Tens of thousands a year depend on Providence for their care. Indeed, Providence, Mobile’s only faith-based hospital, has served, cared for and healed generations of families in southwest Alabama and southeast Mississippi from the tiniest of newborns to their grandparents and great grandparents.
Our hospital is a 349-bed facility, caring for more than 15,000 inpatients and 150,000 outpatients each year. In addition to our Women and Children’s Services and Family Birth Center, the first in Mobile to offer single room maternity care, Providence boasts a number of advanced care services, including our Cancer Center, open-heart surgery, a freestanding rehabilitation and wellness center and an Outpatient Center. Providence’s physician network has 15 practices and more than 70 physicians offering primary and specialty physician services in southwest Alabama and southeast Mississippi.
Our level of expertise and distinction is firmly demonstrated by recognition and acknowledgment. Providence Hospital was honored with an “A” grade in the Fall 2013, Spring 2014, Fall 2014, Spring 2015, Fall 2015, and Spring 2016 updates to the Leapfrog Group Hospital Safety Score, which rates how well hospitals protect patients from accidents, errors, injuries and infections. We are rated the safest hospital in Mobile and our 15,000 surgical cases have the best rating for surgery outcomes in Mobile, according to a major consumer ratings firm.
In addition, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama recently designated Providence Hospital to receive the Blue Distinction Center for Maternity Care designation. Providence already enjoys the same honor for Spine and for Hip and Knee surgery. We also feature a robust Cardiac and Neurosurgery department staffed by board certified physicians and surgeons performing thousands of cardiac procedures each year. Our Heart Failure Clinic and Stroke Center are rated “Gold” and “Gold Plus” by the American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association, and U.S. News and World Report rated us “High Performing” for heart care, making us the only hospital in the area among the top ten percent in the nation with a High Performing service.
