Hospital-Community Partnerships to Build a Culture of Health: A Compendium of Case Studies

Hospital-Community Partnership to Build a Culture of Health:  A Compendium of Case Studies –September  2017 This compendium features detailed descriptions of hospital-community partnerships from across the United States that have made substantial improvement addressing priority health needs in their communities. These hospitals and communities vary in location, service type, type of partners and degree of partnership. All participated in Learning in Collaborative Communities, led by the Health Research & Educational Trust and supported by the Robert Wood Foundation. Insights gained from site visits to the communities helped HRET create a companion guide, A Playbook for Fostering Hospital-Community Partnerships to Build a Culture of Health.

Priority needs that the featured hospital-community partnerships are addressing include:

  • Chronic disease management
  • Health care access
  • Mental and behavioral health
  • Obesity
  • Preventive health practices
  • Social determinants of health
  • Substance use disorders
  • Violence

Partnerships are important because individuals and organizations share valuable insights, tools and resources. Lessons learned from successful partnerships motivate other partnerships to implement effective strategies in their organizations. The case studies in the compendium describe effective partnerships and programs to create a Culture of Health, their impact and lessons learned.
