Saint John’s Health Center To Transition To Providence Hospital This Weekend:

Providence Health & Services, Southern California, will assume sponsorship this Saturday of Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica from the SCL Health System.

This comes following the approval by church and state officials.

The California Attorney General’s Office approved the transaction after the Holy See, the governing office of the Catholic Church, had granted its permission to the change in sponsorship between the two Catholic, not-for-profit healthcare organizations.

Founded in 1942 by the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, Saint John’s will be renamed Providence Saint John’s Health Center and will become the sixth Providence hospital in the Los Angeles Area and the 33rd in the five Western states served by Renton, Wash.-based Providence Health & Services.

Michael Hunn, senior vice president and chief executive of Providence Southern California, said this is a very exciting moment for Providence and for Providence Saint John’s as they unite the legacies of its founders to continue advancing the art and science of quality and compassionate health care.

“The Sisters of Charity have entrusted to Providence a nationally recognized center of healing, and we pledge to continue their mission in Santa Monica and the neighboring Westside communities,” Hunn said.

A private ceremony is planned Friday to mark the transition and to welcome Providence Saint John’s and the John Wayne Cancer Institute to Providence.

Aside from cancer care, Providence Saint John’s is widely known for excellence in women’s health, orthopedics, neuroscience, and cardiology.

Michael L. Wall, acting president and chief executive officer of Providence Saint John’s, said the organization is thrilled with the attorney general’s decision and look forward to joining Providence.

“This is a great opportunity for us to expand our award-winning care to new communities and to provide those we serve with additional resources as well,” Wall said.

The 266-bed Providence Saint John’s, recognized nationwide for its quality care, has been named among America’s 50 Best Hospitals for the past eight years by Healthgrades, a leading consumer ratings agency. The hospital has approximately 1,600 employees and 1,000 physicians on staff.

Additionally, for more than 30 years, the physicians and scientists at the John Wayne Cancer Institute have made groundbreaking discoveries that fundamentally have changed the way cancer is detected, diagnosed and treated.

The institute’s translational research programs focus on melanoma, breast, neurologic and gastrointestinal cancers, as well as innovative research in cancer genomics, molecular biomarkers and immunotherapy.

The John Wayne Cancer Institute also trains the next generation of national leaders in cancer research and treatment through its renowned Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program.

Providence Saint John’s joins new sister hospitals – Providence Saint Joseph, Providence Holy Cross and Providence Tarzana medical centers in the San Fernando Valley and Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Centers in Torrance and San Pedro.

In May, SCL Health System chose Providence to join in exclusive discussions for the proposed sponsorship transfer because of its expertise in managing Catholic hospitals and its extensive physician network.

Catholic hospitals are sponsored, rather than “owned,” by not-for-profit religious ministries.
