2015 PHS Annual Report: Financial Review

Legacy Contributors

Thanks to our founding Legacy Contributors – the Massachusetts Medical Society, Coverys, and CRICO – PHS was transformed more than 20 years from a committee of volunteers to a professionally run 501(c)3 organization.  The yearly, ongoing support of our Legacy Contributors comprises approximately 2/3 of our operating budget, and forms the foundation that has helped us become one of the leading Physician Health Programs in the US.

Caring for Physician Health Campaign 

The most effective form of support is peer-to-peer. This concept is the cornerstone upon which PHS was founded — “by physicians for physicians.” Philanthropic support plays a pivotal role in PHS’s stability and much-needed growth. Please consider supporting your colleagues by contributing to PHS. PHS preserves physicians’ health, which can result in medical license retention and improved health care for all.

Make a Donation
Please consider a donation to support the health and careers of physicians. Learn more about how to make a donation here. Thank you.

The success of PHS and its ability to restore physicians’ health and well-being is centered on a partnership with those who support the services we provide. By donating to PHS, you can feel assured that your contribution is directly related to one or more of the following efforts:

  • Confidential assessment, support, consultation, and monitoring for medical students, residents, and physicians in Massachusetts
  • The development of resources for increasing referrals for substance abuse, mental health concerns, and physical illness and expanding behavioral health services
  • Critical research needed to document outcomes of and successful strategies for physician health treatment
  • Increasing educational offerings, including courses, newsletters, and lectures throughout the state
  • Support groups for physicians and medical students
  • Improving the personal and professional lives of those we serve
  • Expanding the role of PHS into the domain of physician wellness, self-care, and peer support

All donations will be recognized in the PHS Annual Report, with your permission. Share the benefits of physician health with your colleagues. Invite them to donate.
