Our Founders

Gary and Mary West are visionaries who are dedicated to transforming healthcare delivery to make successful aging a reality for all seniors. As successful entrepreneurs, the West’s started a number of pioneering philanthropic initiatives dedicated to improving the lives of seniors. In 2006, Gary and Mary established West Health, which consists of three nonprofit organizations, the Gary and Mary West Foundation, the Gary and Mary West Health Institute, and the Gary and Mary West Health Policy Center – all with a singular mission of enabling seniors to successfully age in place with access to high-quality, affordable health and support services that preserve and protect their dignity, quality of life and independence.
