About Us

The Rippel Foundation was established in 1953 to invest in initiatives addressing cancer, heart disease, the health of women and the elderly, and the maintenance of our nation’s hospitals. Today, we know the best way to do this is to ensure those initiatives bring about a cohesive system of health that focuses on health and well-being, not just health care; a system that is thriving, equitable, and sustainable. To achieve that vision, we work with national and regional stewards to design and execute the strategies they need to guide transformative change and produce better health and well-being for all.
