Dr. Dominque Pepper gives to install hope and advance Mission

SOUTH PUGET SOUND – Led by a group of physicians in 1979, the Providence Southwest Washington was formed to support local initiatives throughout the five-county service area of Southwest Washington. Each year, the Foundation receives generous support from many members of the Medical Staff. 

Pulmonologist Dominque Pepper, MD, joined Providence in 2018. He’s seen first-hand the impact of the Providence Foundation – working in critical care and witnessing the compassion caregivers of the No One Dies Alone Program, and the revitalization of the lung nodule program thanks to a seed gift facilitated by the Foundation.

“Knowing that one's gift has improved and touched the lives of people and their families is an incredibly rewarding experience,” he said. “Giving is important because it wipes away countless suffering and instills vital hope. Importantly, giving is contagious and inspires others to give.”

Dr. Pepper knows the Providence Foundation has a strong history of supporting programs that benefit the community and that drive the mission of Providence to care for the community and provide excellent, compassionate care. Specifically in his area, the Foundation helped them acquire the ION robotic bronchoscopy platform, and mobile cone beam CT. 

“The superior care we now offer our patients with lung nodules would not have been possible without the Providence Foundation,” he said. “The Foundation recognized the potential of our vision and gave us hope and funds to pursue and achieve our goal of expediting earlier and safer lung cancer diagnosis and treatment.”

Please consider joining your colleagues in helping build g a healthier community by funding vital programs and improving services to meet our community's health needs now and in the future.
