The WSMA Foundation for Health Care Improvement is a non-profit 501(c)(3)
organization. At the Foundation, we are living out a vision to make
Washington the best place to receive care and to practice medicine.
Improving Physician Wellness and Patient Care
At the WSMA Foundation, we believe in a future where physicians are
healthy and fulfilled; where physicians, the health care team, and
patients are partners; and where all Washingtonians experience quality
care that aligns with their needs, goals, and values.
Fulfilling that quest depends upon transformational change at all
levels—individual, organizational, and statewide. We believe that change
is possible, and that physicians and patients can thrive in health care
settings that support them.
The Foundation exists today because of the vision of forward-thinking
doctors who cared about—and invested in—the future of the profession more
than 50 years ago.
With your participation and support, the WSMA Foundation ensures that
legacy will continue to benefit physicians today… and tomorrow.
Your tax-deductible donations are an investment in yourself, your peers,
and your profession. Thank you!
