Mission and Vision
The mission of National Jewish Health since 1899 is to heal, to discover and to educate as a preeminent health care institution. We serve by providing the best integrated and innovative care for patients and their families; by understanding and finding cures for the diseases we research; and by educating and training the next generation of health care professionals to be leaders in medicine and science.
Our vision is to be the global leader in the research and treatment of respiratory, immune and related diseases. We pursue this vision by pioneering individualized medicine programs which embrace the paradigm shift from reactive medicine to personalized health care. These programs enable us to integrate the provision of outstanding patient care, the conduct of novel basic, translational, and clinical research, and the education of health care and research professionals. Through our dedicated efforts, we seek to achieve cures for patients who seek treatment and to bring new knowledge and discoveries to help people worldwide.
