We pioneer new and smarter technologies, policies, and practices to make high-quality healthcare more accessible at a lower cost to all Americans.
West Health includes the nonprofit and non-partisan Gary and Mary West Health Institute and the Gary and Mary West Health Policy Center.
America’s population is aging rapidly. Every eight seconds someone turns 65 – a trend that will continue until 2030. We are enabling seniors to live their lives on their own terms with access to high-quality health and support services that preserve and protect one’s dignity, quality of life and independence.
Our policy work and research are focused on three categories of wasteful spending – totaling a third to a half of all U.S. health spending – that could be eliminated without harming patients or reducing the quality of care.
