AHA Strategic Alliances

Collaborating with community based organizations is more important now than ever. Hospital and health systems across the country are “redefining the H” by looking outside of their four walls to create innovative and sustainable partnerships that ultimately lead to healthier communities. At the American Hospital Association, we are also working to ensure that we are collaborating with national partners to reach our vision of a society of health communities, where all individuals reach their highest potential for health. To that end, we have formed groundbreaking strategic alliances with the National Urban League and UnidosUs to advance health equity and diversity/inclusion initiatives that our organizations share.

These partnerships will increase diversity within governance by connecting hospital and health system CEOs with leaders of both organizations to serve on boards, collaborate on national policy discussions and share leading practices for integrating community health workers as a part of clinical care teams. In addition, we will address community challenges around youth violence and post-trauma support. Explore this webpage for more information resources for the field and educational offerings of these partnerships.
