Giving to the Program
Our Program supports clinical excellence and benefits all patients who come to our Medical Center. Our primary goal is to create a center of excellence for patient and caregiver access to medical ethics quality, where patients receive the care they depend on and deserve.
You Can Help...
The Program in Medicine & Human Values (PMHV) is a unique enterprise. We serve patients, families and caregivers as they attempt to make difficult decisions related to medical treatment and care. Our clinical bioethicists provide clinical ethics case consultation and support the coordination of patient’s values and life goals with the medical care being delivered. PMHV handles hospital ethics committee activities, provides education and training meetings for medical professionals, publishes informative literature, and engages in biomedical ethics research. These activities foster the overall positive ethical climate within the hospital and Sutter Health West Bay.
Your generous financial contribution goes directly to sustain high quality patient care that results from ethics consultation, education and research provided by the medical ethics program. Donations to the Program in Medicine and Human Values are managed by California Pacific Medical Center Foundation, a separately incorporated not-for-profit organization whose sole mission is the development of resources for programs PMHV.
