In 2001, Phoebe launched the Phoebe Institute on Aging, a forward-focused program aiming to provide forums for discussion and learning, including educational programs, cooperative ventures, and outreach activities designed to promote improved quality of life and care for the aging and their families.
The Phoebe Institute on Aging was created in recognition of more than a century of caring for older adults at Phoebe.
