The Blog to Transform Advanced Care
Advancing Care through Innovation, Observation and Collaboration.
The Stupski Foundation will be investing more than $14 million in seven local health systems to support patients at the end of life across San Francisco and Alameda Counties. This is the latest development in an initiative first announced by the Stupski Foundation at the 2018 C-TAC Summit.
During the 2018 Summit, Stupski Foundation CEO Glen Galaich committed to investing $40 million in serious illness care efforts across the Bay Area and Hawai’i by 2029. He also revealed that the Stupski Foundation would be spending all of its assets within the next 10 years to address some of the Bay Area’s and Hawai’i’s biggest challenges.
The investments announced by the Stupski Foundation are designed to expand specialty palliative care services by over one-third, double the number of patients receiving home-based palliative care and train hundreds of primary care doctors and support staff on palliative care and how to guide and document conversations on care preferences.
During the 2019 Summit, Stupski Foundation Director of Health Dan Tuttle delivered an update on the organization’s efforts to support those with serious illness and their loved ones. For more information about the new investments announced by the Stupski Foundation, please click here.
