COHC Strategic Priorities: Collaborating to Achieve a Healthier Community
The four Franklin County hospital systems have a long-standing history of working together on pressing healthcare challenges. While we have seen transition in the leaders of our hospital systems, our hospitals continue to share a common belief that many of the issues facing our community can be addressed much more effectively when hospitals work together.
In 2020, the COHC Board of Directors agreed to the strategic priorities of the Hospital Council and adopted a three-year strategic plan. Through the COHC, our hospital systems are committed to collaborating on a number of initiatives aimed at improving the health and well-being of the residents in Central Ohio.
Those initiatives include:
- Reducing central Ohio’s infant mortality rate and cutting the racial disparity rate in half;
- Supporting implementation of Columbus and Franklin County Addiction Plan to reduce overdoses and overdose deaths;
- Increasing access to a full continuum of behavioral health and addiction services; and
- Advancing the health care systems’ efforts to increase diversity, equity and inclusion.
