TLHIP presents AHA Webinar: Innovations in Hospital and Community Health Partnerships

For this American Hospital Association national webinar, leaders from Saint Francis Memorial Hospital and the Saint Francis Foundation spoke openly about their partnership with the surrounding community to improve health outcomes for residents of the highly challenged neighborhood adjacent to the Hospital that is home to many high users of health care. The Tenderloin Health Improvement Partnership (TLHIP) was launched in 2014 with 100 government agencies, nonprofits, businesses and grass roots organizations with the goal of improving community health by addressing social determinants. In just a short time, we have seen positive changes.

Attendees learned:

• How Hospitals and their Foundation partners are uniquely positioned to bring community benefit expertise, relationships and resources together to lead upstream innovations in community health
• How engaging deeply with community partners, aligning mutually reinforcing activities and collaborating for impact, hospital systems can redefine their role in community and create pathways to health
• Strategies for integrated impact though individual case studies
