St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center(May 2017) - Hospice of the Valley, which has partnered with St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center for many years, has contributed a generous endowment of $1,000,000 to support a full-time Palliative Care Fellow at St. Joseph’s Hospital, beginning in fiscal year 2018. An additional gift from Hospice of the Valley for $150,000 will provide the support and infrastructure to establish the fellowship program in palliative care. The funds will support the majority of needs of one fellow, under the direction of the Vice President of Academic Affairs Jeffrey Sugimoto, MD.

St. Joseph’s Hospital and Hospice of the Valley have partnered for years to improve care and services for those in need in Arizona. This fellowship program will provide much needed medical care in our community, as well as strengthen the continuity of care for patients, families and loved ones facing devastating diseases.
