US-based health system Endeavor Health has announced the establishment of the Davis Family Center for Preventive Genomics.

This initiative has been realised with a $10m donation from philanthropists William (Bill) and Karen Davis of Lake Forest.

The Davis Family Center for Preventive Genomics was named in honour of the Davis family’s substantial contribution to the advancement of genomics and personalised medicine.

Endeavor Health president and CEO JP Gallagher said: “We are deeply grateful for this extraordinary gift from Bill and Karen Davis that will enable us to elevate patient care and pursue new discoveries.

“Their generosity is both monumental in its magnitude and transformative in its impact on the future of healthcare.”

The formation of the centre is part of Endeavor Health’s strategy to deepen its commitment to personalised therapies by providing proactive genomic information to patients to enhance prevention and screening protocols.

The virtual Center of Excellence will be instrumental in integrating tailored medicine and genomics testing into Endeavor Health’s primary care practices, enabling patients and their healthcare providers to make more informed decisions regarding early detection, preventive strategies, and tailored treatment plans.

Endeavor Health also operates The Mark R. Neaman Center for Personalized Medicine.

This facility offers genomic-based tests that support tailored diagnostic and treatment options for patients.

Mark R Neaman Center for Personalized Medicine director Peter Hulick said: “Unfortunately for most patients, genomics isn’t incorporated into their care plan.

“Endeavor Health has been an industry leader in providing genomics-guided care to better identify health risks and deliver targeted prevention and treatments. This transformational gift will enable us to build on early successes in an exponential way to deliver personalised medicine to our patients and their families.”
