Mission

The Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) is a public charity that offers a unique blend of research, education, grantmaking and program management to advance the quality of clinical care and health of populations. Its current focus is promoting safety, best practice and efficiency at the front line of care, and building a workforce to sustain this. To accomplish its goals, JHF created three operating arms — the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative (PRHI) in 1998, Health Careers Futures (HCF) in 2003, and the Women's Health Activist Movement Global (WHAMglobal) in 2017. Together these organizations develop and manage programs, research, training and grantmaking to perfect patient care. JHF is also the fiscal agent for State HIV/AIDS funding in Pennsylvania. We are funded by public and private sources, and the JHF endowment.

JHF is also a founding member of the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI).
