The Group Health Foundation supports Group Health in providing the best care for our members and creating better health in our communities.
The Foundation uses grant making, school outreach, fundraising, and strategic partnerships to develop and test care innovations for children and their families at Group Health Medical Centers.
Partnership for Innovation
Group Health knows that front line clinical teams are often in the best positions to identify innovations that improve care, reduce costs, and increase patient satisfaction. The Foundation's Partnership for Innovation is a donor-funded grants program that provides an opportunity to identify and test true innovations.
The Partnership for Innovation is a three-way collaboration the includes the expertise of our research institute, the daily efforts of our clinical teams, and the vision of our donors. Between 2008-2012, Foundation donors put almost $2.5 million into patient-centered research — 31 pilot projects conceived of and carried out at Group Health.
