OUR

MISSION

HIP's Mission is rooted in improvement: of systems, quality, relationships, and access to care. We create opportunities for local healthcare leaders to make our community healthier.

HOW WE SUCCEED
  • We provide a neutral table or platform--a nexus--where leaders can and do convene.

  • We help leaders tee up, focus on, and constructively address issues that are beyond any one organization's capacity or domain, yet affect all of us.

  • We build trust and transparency to make these conversations possible and productive.

  • We seek out and bring transformative ideas and relevant, cutting-edge training to make our community and its residents as healthy as possible.
