Advancing Research Through Philanthropy

Healthcare Research

Philanthropy plays a vital role advancing research and in the development of innovation. Together with some of the brightest health care leaders in our health region, we can attract top talent to our community, and support the development of advanced patient care.

With donor investment, physicians and researchers can help to generate new knowledge that will ultimately contribute to healthcare decision making and improve patient care and related outcomes.

Moving Research Forward…

With the growing amount of information being generated daily, in a more traditional research environment it can often take years for new findings to be recognized and applied to practice.

Now, by embedding research right within the healthcare environment, research activities can be targeted to the needs of specific patient populations ensuring the evidence comes into practice locally much sooner.

There is a growing movement of research that is led by, and responsive to, the needs of those that are most impacted by the area of interest. In healthcare, this has resulted in an increasing focus on applied ‘patient-oriented research’ and collaboration across organizations and sectors in order to produce meaningful evidence that can be used in today’s practice.
