Funding Decision Process: Who and How

2024 Expression of Interest

  • Each application will be reviewed by the specified medical staff Pillar Advisory Committee (PAC) and PHC partners, to evaluate and score against a standard framework. The PHC-PASS team will notify applicants of their funding status by April 15, 2024.
  • Some organizational supports will be available for successful projects to enable project implementation (e.g. data analytics through Corporate Development, Innovation projects can access resources available through Ideas Forward).
  • Successful project leads and participants will receive funds via the Facility Engagement FEMS system (requires sign-up).

Prior to 2024

PASS did not hold any Expressions of Interest for medical-staff led projects between 2021-2023, due to PASS facility engagement funding being mostly dedicated to launching and establishing Pillar Advisory Committees at Providence.

From 2017 to 2022, approximately 60 individual medical staff-led projects were funded by PASS, through the Facility Engagement program. Each project was approved based on its alignment with PASS strategic priorities of that time. This included focused project intakes for COVID-related projects in 2020 and vision-supporting projects for the New St. Paul’s Hospital in early 2021. Project selection was led by PASS Working Group members (Co-chairs and Subcommittee leads) in collaboration with PHC’s Executive Director of Medical Affairs. Funding of individual projects was allocated based on available funds and each project’s level of alignment with PASS strategic goals.
