Olympia: Providence St. Francis House

2234 Providence St Francis House Hero

Providence St. Francis house is a safe, controlled-access apartment building nestled among the trees next to Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia. Residents enjoy a park-like setting with plenty of walking paths and beautiful raised garden beds.

We were founded in 1998 and are operated by Providence Health & Services. Our apartments were built and designed to give seniors (age 62 and older) an affordable and welcoming place to call home.

Providence St. Francis house is pleased to offer on-site service coordination to help residents age in place.
