Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Medical Education

Valleywise Health trains Arizona's future doctors, nurses and allied health professionals - and houses one of Arizona's largest and longest running Physician Training programs with 13 graduate medical education programs ranging from emergency medicine, to adult and child psychiatry.

In addition, Valleywise Health Foundation supports innovative burn care, teaching and community health programs at Valleywise Health.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Students
Researchers
Emergency responders

The Arizona Burn Center at Valleywise Health is among the largest and best academic burn centers in the nation and Arizona’s nationally verified adult and pediatric burn center serving the entire Southwest. For decades, the renowned leader in innovation, research and world-class clinical care has existed and excelled in a confined disjointed space – not designed for the unique needs of our vast number of burn and wound care patients. Funds raised through Valleywise Health Foundation will support the new Arizona Burn Center at Valleywise Health.

Population(s) Served

Valleywise Health is the largest provider of inpatient psychiatric care in Arizona – so our experts know healing the mind is just as important as healing the body. The Foundation provides philanthropic support for Valleywise Health programs including eight Family Resource Centers, Behavioral Health Services, Women's and Children's Health, Level I Trauma, Cancer Care, and Primary and Specialty Care at 11 Community Health Centers across Maricopa County.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Valleywise Health Foundation’s goal is to raise funds for key Valleywise Health programs, educational resources, research, programming, and critical patient services. As well as, expanding philanthropic giving to bridge the gap between public funding and actual operating and program costs - all benefiting the underserved community and promoting preventative education and healthcare.

Valleywise Health Foundation works to reach its goals by increasing engagement with Arizona’s philanthropic community. This includes educating and connecting Arizona's philanthropic and business leaders with the public health system that serves as the safety net and direct health provider for hundreds of thousands who may not have the means or access to health education or medical care. Investing in education and preventative care for all citizens isn't just the right thing to do. The return on investment for the economy and health of the county and state makes it a win-win for all.

Valleywise Health Foundation has motivated, experienced and passionate community leaders on its Board of Directors and ALL IN Cabinet who understand the urgency and magnitude of supporting public health. Along with an engaged staff working in partnership with health system leadership to maximize resources, provide transparency and serve as thoughtful stewards of these impactful philanthropic dollars.

Valleywise Health Foundation continues to fund vital programs supporting community health at Valleywise Health. Through increasing philanthropic impact, the Foundation continues to expand the advocacy, community awareness and funds needed to support the Valleywise Health mission.
