Community Initiatives

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

Networks of Care

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.

Mobile Crisis for Opioid Abuse

The Foundation is developing a coordinated crisis response plan between Emergency Departments and County EMS departments to improve management and outcomes for Opioid Use Disorder patients.

Care Transitions

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

NCHF Disaster Relief Fund

The Disaster Relief Fund, administered by the North Carolina Hospital Foundation, has been established to provide assistance to member hospital and health system employees and their communities significantly impacted by natural disasters that occur in North Carolina.

Peer Support Program

The Peer Support program seeks to improve connections to ongoing treatment, recovery, and harm reduction supports for patients presenting to emergency departments with non-fatal opioid overdose.

NC Mobile Medication Program

The NC Mobile Medication Program ensures that people at risk of psychiatric hospitalizations understand and stay on track with their medications.
