CULTIVATING MEANINGFUL CHANGE

HC3's Impact

Chicago’s health care leaders and businesses have an important role in advancing opportunities at the cross-section of economic development, system transformation, and health disparities.

Everything we do is pursued by channeling the diverse and multi-sectoral coalition of health care leaders throughout the city to strengthen, reinforce, or fill empty space for critical economic and civic objectives to advance the entire community’s collective interest in a vibrant, cutting-edge and healthy Chicago.

Health Care Work Force Development

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way people live and work in ways that we could not have predicted prior to 2020.  As businesses are ready to shift from managing through the pandemic’s crisis to adapting to the ongoing challenges of an endemic infection, leaders across the board are now turning their attention to matters other than COVID-19, attempting to incorporate sustainable strategies that build trust and invest in their current employees while endeavoring to fill vacant positions.  HC3 is collaborating and working closely with various community and business partners to address how we leverage resources to catalyze sustainable, durable workforce solutions that can influence and help rebuild Chicago’s healthcare ecosystem.

Community Partnerships

HC3's collaborations continue to influence Chicago's health care landscape significantly. Key initiatives include a longstanding partnership with Acclivus aimed at reducing violence, providing strategic support to the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) to better socio-economic and health care outcomes for women in South Chicago, and offering communications and networking advice to Honeysuckle Home ahead of their inaugural facility launch in fall 2023 to aid foster care youth. Recently, we've also expanded our reach by partnering with Chicago Integrated Health, contributing to their comprehensive health lifestyle interventions

Safety Net Transformation

Chicago’s safety net system plays an indispensable role in supporting the health of our most vulnerable communities. The system is uniquely engineered to support the health and well-being of our neighborhoods, but without a significant effort of coordinated, thoughtful, and deliberate action, it is bound for a significant decline in five years.  HC3 is exploring opportunities through policy, systemic restructuring, and community engagement to disrupt the system to serve our local communities better.

PATH (Pediatric Transformative Healthcare)

HC3 is honored to be a part of the PATH (Pediatric and Adolescent Transformative Healthcare) initiative, a collaborative effort spearheaded by the Saint Anthony Hospital Foundation under the umbrella of the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) Collaboratives program. This program is dedicated to bridging gaps in health care services and addressing the persistent access barriers and inequalities within Illinois' health care system. The year 2023 marked the inaugural full year of project development with PATH, where HC3 played a pivotal role in laying the foundation for success. As 2024 unfolds, HC3 is excited to welcome a new Manager who will oversee and facilitate our involvement in this learning collaborative. (Announcement here)
