Strategic Collaborations

Working with West Health

Together, with top nonprofit and academic partners and advocates, we’re working to lower healthcare costs and enable successful aging in America. Solely funded by successful entrepreneurs-turned-philanthropists Gary and Mary West, we bring independence, expertise, and a winning spirit to every endeavor or partnership. What matters to seniors matters to us. It guides every problem we tackle, every decision we make, every collaborator we work with, and every program we develop and support. Our portfolio of outcomes-based grants, applied medical research, and policy activities is focused entirely on our successful aging mission.
