a new chapter begins...

2019 was a year of new beginnings for Arizona's public teaching health system. After more than 140 years serving Arizona's most critical health care needs, Maricopa Integrated Health System changed its name to better reflect the important role it plays in the lives of ALL Arizonans. The "VALLEY" in our name represents the exceptional, compassionate care provided throughout Maricopa County, one of the largest and fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the country. Our hospitals and 12 community health centers throughout the Valley are there to treat all who walk through our doors with dignity and respect, regardless of their ability to pay. "WISE" signifies nearly a century-and-a-half of wisdom gained serving Arizona as a teaching hospital, and for our role as one of Arizona's oldest and largest physician training programs. With nearly 3,500 medical learners rotating through our system each year - YOUR doctor likely trained at Valleywise Health. New buildings, new programs, new donors, new beginnings and a new name - we invite you to go ALL IN with our Foundation as Valleywise Health transforms care to improve community health. The groundwork is laid, and the rest of the story is ours to write - together.

Sincerely, Nate Lowrie

CEO, Valleywise Health Foundation

Kevin Neal

Board Chair, Valleywise Health Foundation

it takes a community... We support the mission of Valleywise Health to provide exceptional care, without exception, every patient, every time… Great things take a village (or in our case a Valley) to achieve, and in 2019 our community stepped up to support our public teaching health system more than ever in our history. A new name and brand, long-planned construction milestones, expanded community support and record-setting success - all happened in 2019.

Valleywise Health employees raised more than $8,000 in the first Employee - ALL IN with Valleywise Health Campaign. ALL IN Employee ambassadors pictured above following the inaugural employee kick-off event. Throughout 2019, DMG and Valleywise employees donated more than $229,000 to the Valleywise Health Foundation.

Valleywise Health Foundation's first Phoenix Suns Charities grant was awarded in 2019. The $10,000 gift supported Arizona children and families through the four Valleywise Health Family Learning Centers.

Valleywise Health Foundation's 2019 Legacy Award recipients, the Arizona Women's Board, increased their annual support making the new Valleywise Health Food Pharmacy program possible in 2019.

A $5,000 grant from the MAC Cosmetics AIDS Fund makes the Women's Breakfast Club at the Valleywise Community Health Center - McDowell possible.

In partnership with Entercom Phoenix, the first LIVE 101.5 GIVE-A-THON benefiting Valleywise Health took place in December 2019.

"I get a chance to be around women who are just like me and going through the same challenges I am."

The two-day radio event exceeded fundraising goals and launched an ongoing partnership with the team at LIVE 101.5.

people inspiring philanthropy...


Unlike other health systems, more than 65 percent of Valleywise Health patients are financially vulnerable... For 15 years, we've been involved and supportive of our Valley's only public teaching hospital and healthcare system, formerly MIHS, now Valleywise Health.

Nita and Phil Francis Valleywise Health Foundation ALL-IN Campaign Co-Chairs

Valleywise Health has the best burn center in the Southwest, teaches the most doctors in the state, and does the most extensive mental health work in the county. We are proud to support the health system whose mission is to serve our most vulnerable neighbors. Now more than ever, we are ALL IN for Valleywise Health.

Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.


The entire Graham family stands firmly behind the mission of Valleywise Health... as they deliver truly exceptional care to every single patient who walks in their doors. The world class care delivered every day along with their mission to train future doctors is essential to the continued health of our community. We are excited about the future of Valleywise Health and would love for others to join us in supporting the forward movement.

Kathleen and John Graham Valleywise Health Foundation ALL IN Campaign Cabinet

We give to Valleywise Health Foundation, because it's our way of giving back... It has been a privilege and blessing to work with compassionate colleagues and our grateful patients for nearly 40 years. We are thankful for all the Foundation does to make a positive difference at Valleywise Health.

Leanor and William Johnson, MD Department of Anesthesiology, Medical Director, Perioperative Services Valleywise Health


Legacy Circle

To passionately and proactively take on the Valley’s most critical health care needs – and to care for our neighbors with nowhere else to turn – we need community support. Our Legacy Circle members are valued and impactful.

it all pays off...

Donors might not understand the impact they make, with something as simple as a backpack. "A child’s life is filled with transitions, and one of the biggest is starting school. A backpack becomes the first personal belonging a child brings from home. It not only provides sense of security, but also, represents structure and preparedness for school." Rebecca Birr

Valleywise Health Family Learning Centers

We are so grateful for the Arizona Women's Board for making the Food Pharmacy possible... The Food Pharmacy allows us to treat patients as “a whole,” with healthy food, healthy food preparation and healthy lifestyle mentoring. This is the beginning of something incredible – patient-centered care that is changing the future for our families living with diabetes. Tina Younger, MD

Valleywise Health Food Pharmacy

Internal Medicine QI Director Valleywise Health

Your gifts help change the conversation about brain health through our First Episode Center... Investing early in programs like the First Episode Center, makes a tremendous impact, not only in the individual's life, but also on their family and the community. The typical cost of treatment for psychosis and schizophrenia includes hospitalizations, case management, therapy support and more. There are many downstream benefits to preventing this early, most importantly, young people who learn to manage their diagnosis and go back to living productive lives.

First Episode Center Member Alicia Cowdrey, MD Outpatient Medical Director Behavioral Health Services
