Valleywise Health is the health care safety net for citizens of Maricopa County. The health system serves people of many races and nationalities who come from diverse cultures and speak several different languages. Many of the patients face major challenges, such as lack of health insurance, complex medical problems, and difficult socioeconomic situations. Caring for these patients demands special knowledge and sensitivity. Valleywise Health is committed to giving culturally appropriate, sensitive medical care and helping our patients live healthier lives. Valleywise Health provides care for all that enter its doors. Annually, Valleywise Health has nearly 20,000 inpatient admissions and 300,000 outpatient visits.
The Grants and Research Department has over $77 million of external funding over the last decade and is home to health services research, laboratory-based, and clinical research. A hallmark of Valleywise Health is its focus on community-based participatory approach; dissemination of the findings of investigations that expand knowledge and understanding of the broad field of health care, and that help to improve the health of individuals and communities.
