About Providence Newberg Health Foundation
Providence Newberg Health Foundation, a local, non-profit corporation, promotes and raises funds to strengthen the ability of Providence Newberg Medical Center to enhance quality health care and to provide optimal health for individuals in the communities we serve. Providence Newberg Health Foundation was founded in 1985 by a small group of physicians and community leaders who were interested in supporting, through charitable giving, what was then known as Newberg Community Hospital. Today, governed by a 16-member volunteer Board of Trustees, the Foundation has raised more than $6 million toward many program and service projects including charity care for the poor and vulnerable, staff education programs, and equipment such as a new spiral CT scanner, fetal heart monitors, computer aided detection for mammography and cardiac ultrasound.
