Teaching Hospital Affiliation

The Annenberg Center for Health Sciences (Annenberg Center) is a unique educational institution that is part of Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, California. The Annenberg Center was founded with a dual mission to serve the needs of the Medical Center's medical staff and also – in the words of its founder, the late Ambassador Walter Annenberg – to serve as a gathering place where “policy makers will discuss the problems of 21st century medicine.”

Nonprofit Status

The Center is organized as a 501(c)3 non-for-profit organization and overseen by a Board of Directors which in turn operates under the auspices of the Eisenhower Medical Center's Board of Directors.

Health care is at the top of the agenda for policy makers as excitement over medical breakthroughs is tempered by concerns about spiraling costs and quality issues that many experience in the American health care system. The Annenberg Center is committed to its founding mission by focusing on the needs of the following constituencies:

  • The staff of Eisenhower Medical Center
  • Health care providers in the southern desert region of California
  • Health care providers throughout the nation
  • Health care providers internationally in selected specialties
