Providence: Modernising & Innovating Healthcare
Providence is a 165-year-old healthcare company and takes enormous pride in the fact that they were founded by women. Over the decades, they have grown immensely, combining the ministries of ‘Providence' and 'St. Joseph' while expanding through the acquisition of other health systems, which has allowed them to be the US$25bn health system that they are today – and one of the largest health systems in the US.
As a whole and as individuals, each member of the team works to serve their communities in Alaska, Montana, Oregon, Washington California, Texas and New Mexico. Providence’s mission is to serve all, especially the poor and the vulnerable, through their vision of 'Health for a Better World’.
“We primarily serve communities across seven states here on the west coast of the US, with 52 total hospitals and ministries, over 1000 clinics and 120,000 caregivers that serve those communities,” says B.J. Moore, CIO & EVP of Real-Estate Strategy Operations at Providence.
Moore has a professional career spanning 30 years, 27 of which were spent at Microsoft with roles in everything from finance and operations to IT. His last role at Microsoft was as the VP of engineering responsible for the company’s global commerce and compliance. After 27 years, ready to do something different and just as healthcare saw the rising need for digital transformation, Moore joined Providence as their Chief Information Officer (CIO). Since joining three years ago, he's also taken on their real-estate strategy and operations.
