Anthony Herrington has been named the new chief diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) officer for Providence in Oregon. He begins his new role April 12.

Anthony shares Providence’s commitment to DEI as we support and respect all caregivers, the people we serve and our communities.

Under Anthony’s leadership, Providence Oregon will continue to move forward with learnings, plans and actions toward becoming more equitable and inclusive to all.

Russ Reinhard, chief executive for Providence Willamette Falls Medical Center, is retiring on April 15, which is 29 years to the day of when he first began working here.
