Southwestern Medical Foundation is a visionary institution that identifies opportunities and challenges to inspire and advance progress in medicine. The Foundation helps create needed resources to advance medicine primarily in the southwestern United States through the commitment of donors, helping to assure the highest quality of medicine through scientific discoveries, medical training, and patient care.

Since 1939, the Foundation has connected the vision of donors with highly innovative programs and served as a sustainable funding source for leading edge research, medical education and patient care, while stewarding the important assets which donors have entrusted.

Southwestern Medical Foundation is guided by four building standards: Service to Community, Vision of Excellence, Mindful Stewardship, and Best Outcomes. Each building standard is a promise to donors, beneficiaries, and generations to come that the Foundation is dedicated to bringing the gift of better health to our community and to the world beyond.
