Johnny Mankin, Providence Foundation Chairman of the Board, joined the board in 2008. He says, "I've always had a love for Providence, but I was able to see Providence from another perspective in 2005 when I had open heart surgery. I got to see first hand the passion that the doctors, nurses, and staff have for what they do. They made me feel like I was the only patient there." Johnny leads a board of dedicated community leaders; helping the Foundation secure philanthropic gifts to support Providence Healthcare Network's mission of impacting the health and wellness of the Waco community through state-of-the-art medical equipment, professional and compassionate services, and top ranked facilities and healthcare workers.
Providence Foundation, a 501c (3) tax exempt organization, was established in 1993 to secure philanthropic gifts from the community to award grants to the divisions and departments of the Providence Healthcare Network
