INNOVATING for the next 150

Innovation: $25 million

There is an urgent need to invent more compassionate, creative, and insightful ways to care for patients and communities.

Innovation must become the foundation for us to improve health outcomes for our fellow Mainers. In turn, this work has the potential to shape best practices throughout the entire nation.

This campaign will raise $25 million for research and innovation.
