"After trying acupuncture as well as changing to a plant based diet, I have seen improvements in my vision and had hope as I live with the challenges and uncertainty of Retinitis Pigmentosa. Reading the mission statement of the Penny George Institute, I knew that our values aligned. I am so grateful to donate to a foundation that supports healing and is creating a space where our community has access to integrative medicine."
- Hannah, founder of Watson & Wilma

Created in 2003, Penney George Institute has become the largest integrative health center embedded in a health system in the country. Our doctors, nurse practitioners, acupuncturists, and other experts have the highest credentials in their fields.

Our work is grounded in focusing not just on your illness, symptoms or health goal, but your whole being – mind, body and spirit. We partner with and empower you to tap into your body's own healing capabilities. We emphasize education, coaching, and help equip you with tools and practices to promote the best you.

What does integrative health look like?

  • When you are healthy, our physicians, nutritionists, health coaches, exercise specialists, educators and other providers will help you find ways to build your resiliency, sleep better, reach your ideal weight or accomplish any health goal you put forward to do more of what you love.
  • When you are sick with any illness - ranging from a seasonal flu to cancer - we can help to support you with novel approaches including acupuncture, massage therapy, integrative nutrition, and integrative medicine consultations.
  • When you are looking for new options for dealing with chronic pain, allergies, stomach problems or fertility issues, we can work with you to identify new solutions by considering both Western and Eastern medicine.

Penny George Institute Foundation (PGIF) supports the work of the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing, a national leader and pioneer in holistic health.

A gift to PGIF helps:

  • ensure more people will have access to holistic health services to prevent illness, heal and live healthier lives
  • support innovative care focused not just on a disease or injury—but a person's whole being—mind, body and spirit
  • strengthen the future of the Penny George Institute, which has been bringing integrative medicine—sometimes called complementary or alternative medicine—into the mainstream health system.
