Medicine of the Twenty-First Century, Here at Valley
A major focus at The Valley Hospital is to carry out cutting edge clinical trials and support novel translational research, which is research that takes the data staff gather and applies it at the bedside to directly impact our patients. Information from scientific investigation informs decisions and practices regarding our patients and enables our doctors to tailor care to each and every individual. Valley’s research program saves lives.
The continued growth and development of Valley's distinguished programs in neuroscience, cardiology, oncology and research furthers Valley's mission of putting people first while nurturing scientific inquiry. We invite you to join us in this endeavor. In order to properly fund these initiatives, we need your help to create a number of endowments including chairs, directorships, fellowships, and research funds.
