West Wireless celebrates big announcements

The West Wireless Health Institute (WWHI) last week celebrated two major announcements, including an additional $25 million commitment from the Gary and Mary West Foundation.

The latest funds will be used to ramp up recruitment of what is described in a news release as “world-class engineering talent and accelerate its mission on a national and global scale.” The institute is housed on Torrey Pines Mesa across from UCSD and adjacent to the site of the Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine now under construction.

The announcement brings the West Foundation’s grants to the institute to nearly $100 million. WWHI is among the first medical research organizations dedicated to lowering the cost of health care through wireless health solutions.

Also at the June 17 event, institute Chief Executive Officer Don Casey announced that CareFusion, Cisco and Medtronic are now among its Technology and Education (T&E) partners. They will work with WWHI teams on a variety of initiatives.
