June 24, 2022 | News

VANCOUVER, Wash. – The ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court on Roe v. Wade will not impact patient care at PeaceHealth, as direct abortion is not performed in any location owned, leased or operated as a PeaceHealth facility. We remain committed to treating each person in a loving and caring way. We respect diverse individual needs and adhere to all applicable legal and regulatory requirements, including those of the states where we operate.

About PeaceHealth: PeaceHealth, based in Vancouver, Wash., is a not-for-profit Catholic health system offering care to communities in Washington, Oregon and Alaska. PeaceHealth has approximately 16,000 caregivers, a group practice with more than 1,200 providers and 10 medical centers serving both urban and rural communities throughout the Northwest. In 1890, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace founded what has become PeaceHealth. The Sisters shared expertise and transferred wisdom from one medical center to another, always finding the best way to serve the unmet need for healthcare in their communities. Today, PeaceHealth is the legacy of the founding Sisters and continues with a spirit of respect, stewardship, collaboration and social justice in fulfilling its Mission.
