Community Initiatives

The North Carolina Healthcare Foundation fosters collaboration between health systems and other organizations to improve community health outcomes. Here are our current community initiatives:

AccessHealth NC

Community-based networks of care across the state providing access to coordinated primary and specialty healthcare services for the low-income, uninsured.

Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas

Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas is a community-based approach to addressing chronic health issues, such as unhealthy weight, diabetes and heart disease.

Behavioral Health Workgroups

NCHA has convened statewide, multi-sector workgroups to determine how best to support member hospitals/systems through advocacy and programmatic efforts.

Care Transitions

Effective care transitions require coordinated efforts across all health settings to ensure high-quality patient care and reduce avoidable readmissions.

COVID-19 Fill the Gap Response Fund

The North Carolina Hospital Foundation created the Fill the Gap Response Fund  to support that address health disparities worsened by the COVID-19 crisis. Applications are now being accepted.

COVID-19 Healthcare Hero Response Fund

The COVID-19 Healthcare Hero Response Fund partnered with restaurants to provide meals to healthcare heroes who are on the frontlines of caring for patients during the pandemic.
