Gold Partners Council

The Gold Partners Council is a critical partner for the Gold Foundation, both as a vibrant extension of its mission into medical schools, academic medical centers, and hospitals, and as invaluable support to ensure humanistic care is sustained in the future.

View the lists of Gold Partners Council Medical School members and Hospital and Medical Center members.

The members of the Gold Partners Council are leaders of humanism in healthcare. Beyond the many tangible benefits, their membership sends a signal to their staff and their patients that they recognize that optimal care must be compassionate, collaborative, and scientifically excellent. 

We look to the Gold Partners Council members in our development of new programs and evolution of our current ones.
