The United Health Foundation was established by UnitedHealth Group in 1999 as a not-for-profit, private foundation dedicated to improving health and health care. The Foundation is helping to build healthier communities through the following initiatives:
The power of partnership and collaboration is key to improving the health of our communities.
We partner with organizations committed to innovative health care delivery that improves access and outcomes. Each year, United Health Foundation provides contributions and support to organizations locally and nationally whose work aims to improve the health and lives of those we both serve.
All health care is local, and through strategic partnerships, programs and initiatives we are connecting individuals around the globe to much needed care.
Many factors impact health, including where an individual lives, adequate housing and convenient transportation services. Our partnerships and mission go beyond health and access to care.
We are committed to providing responsive, compassionate service to seniors, the military and veterans community, moms and kids in need, the chronically ill, and vulnerable and diverse communities.
We are helping build healthier communities by working to create a modern health workforce that can meet distinct cultural needs, analyze complex data and provide the right type of care in the right setting.
