The Hospital Council of Northern and Central California is a nonprofit hospital and health system trade association established in 1961, representing 185 hospitals and health systems in 50 of California’s 58 counties—from Kern County to the Oregon border. The Hospital Council’s membership includes hospitals and health systems ranging from small, rural hospitals to large, urban medical centers, representing more than 37,000 licensed beds.
Hospital Council delivers services geographically through sections, each with specially designated staff. The structure provides members with opportunities to pursue common goals and efforts that may be county-specific and/or regional in nature. Section meetings occur routinely to timely address local issues. The Healthcare Foundation of Northern and Central California, the 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity supporting the Hospital Council, carries out a wide range of health care related programs including:
Programs to reduce impact of frequent users on emergency departments
Community based resources to reduce impact on emergency departments and hospital overcrowding such as respite centers, mental health services, and temporary housing
Workforce training grants and scholarship programs
For every $1 of your dues paid, the hospital associations generated more than $400 in direct value for 2017. We’re proud to highlight many of our accomplishments on your behalf in the 2017 Member Value Report.
The Hospital Council works in partnership with CHA to influence state and federal legislation and regulatory issues. At the local level, the Hospital Council monitors County Boards of Supervisors, health departments and other agencies, and supports member involvement in local decision-making on such critical issues as health care workforce, the safety net, access to care, emergency medical services (EMS) and reimbursement, patient safety, community benefits and more.
