WellSky launches foundation

Thursday, May 9, 2019

LENEXA, Kan. – WellSky has launched WellSky Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to improving quality of life by removing social barriers to better health outcomes. The foundation will focus on the top socioeconomic factors that impact overall wellbeing: food insecurity, housing, transportation and isolation. “At the heart of the WellSky Foundation is the belief that working together with community partners elevates care and helps people in need find support, kindness, and a better chance at recovery and lasting wellness,” said Andrea Morgan, executive director of the WellSky Foundation. “WellSky understands that caring for the whole person—in the context of their communities, families and social support systems—results in better outcomes, lower costs, and sustainable care. It is the driving force behind the WellSky Foundation.” WellSky Foundation hopes to announce its first round of beneficiaries and grant recipients later this year.
