Pacific Health Consulting Group provides expert consultation to foundations that provide funding in the healthcare arena on the development of new initiatives that expand healthcare access to low-income individuals. These projects become large, multi-year, major policy and program initiatives.
Some of our most recent foundation initiatives projects include:
