This is the logo the various Providence facilities, and well known in the Portland area. The spare, hypermodern Latinate cross referencing the religious founders of the Providence network; the cool blue, a color frequently found in graphics referencing hospitals; the use of two fonts to differentiate the system name from the facility name (also divided by the bar).

Providence logo, after
This works really well. The type is easier on the eyes, and therefore more friendly; the blue still is with us, but what really brings this alive is the warm yellow in the arc which gives impressions of sunrise, rebirth, new day, positive images and warm and friendly connotations.
The new Providence identity is warmer and friendlier in its rethought name: Providence Health & Services, which is more personal and less intimidating than the idea of a Health System, which can have negative, cold and impersonal connotations in today's world.
This is a success. I respond to and enjoy it. Wonder which agency?
