Providence Hospital (Wallace, Idaho)
Providence Archives preserves the historical records of the Sisters of Providence of Mother Joseph Province, their health care and low-income housing corporations, and the more than 120 active and inactive institutions comprising Providence Health & Services (Alaska, California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington). The collections provide valuable resources for documenting the Sisters of Providence religious community and the development and administration of education, health care, and social services in the West from 1856 to the present. The Archives consists of manuscript and printed material including chronicles, correspondence, minutes, patient and student ledgers, financial records, and publications, as well as photographs, film, audio tape, and maps. A wide range of artifacts representing the religious community and institutional history is also preserved. Descriptive inventories and bibliographies facilitate access to the collections.
