In joining together to support MLP, our partners focus attention on helping patients address the social issues that are essential to achieving lasting health. Our success depends on the willingness of these institutions’ healthcare providers, lawyers and leaders to champion patient legal rights as an integral part of healthcare:
“From the beginning of developing an MLP in the Northwest we have been strategic about the need to build a solid and successful infrastructure with critical partnerships that could enable us to build on and expand services. This vision has served us well. We have successfully branched out
to serve adults as well as children, and continue to magnify our reach throughout the state.”
—Carol Jenkins, former co-director and founding partner of MLP
Pro Bono Partners
The National Center for Medical-Legal Partnership leads and sustains a nationwide MLP Network. They support Washington MLP and similar projects around the country by fostering collaboration through learning networks, fellowships, and the annual MLP Summit.
The Washington MLP is the only medical-legal partnership in the Pacific Northwest—one of 97 networked partnerships across the country. Together, each year these groups provide legal intervention for more than 54,000 patients through 292 healthcare institutions. Directly and indirectly, the Washington program has helped thousands of patients and families since it began in 2008.
