FHC & NHHA Hold Successful Annual Meeting

2016 Annual Meeting of the Foundation for Healthy Communities & New Hampshire Hospital Association


Recently, the the Foundation for Healthy Communities and New Hampshire Hospital Association held their Annual Meeting at the OMNI Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire.  It is at this meeting that hospitals, healthcare leaders and community partners from across the state come together to celebrate the work being done by all, and to honor those who have made significant contributions to hospitals and the healthcare field.

This year’s meeting, Advancing Total Population Health:  How do we get there from here? focused on the collaborative efforts our hospitals, providers and partners are undertaking to build healthcare delivery systems that will allow them to provide the right care, in the right place, at the right time - every time.

It’s a theme that speaks to the transformation that is occurring in health care here in New Hampshire and the goal of delivering evidence-based, high quality, affordable and accessible care to the patients and communities our hospitals and providers serve.

For those of us in health care, partnering together is what makes our work so meaningful, but it’s also what makes possible our ability to deliver on the goals of changing the way we deliver care to our patients to improve overall health.

We also celebrate the culmination of the Foundation for Healthy Communities’ 20th year of living its mission of improving health and health care in communities through education and partnerships that engage individuals and organizations. The success of the Foundation is a direct testament to the commitment of many partners, individuals and organizations alike, and we thank all of you for your continued support. 

We unveiled the Foundation for Healthy Communities’ framework for Total Population Health in New Hampshire, as well as their 20 Year report, which provides a terrific summary of the Foundation’s efforts and milestones over the years working with its partners, as well as the path forward as we continue those efforts to advance total population health.
