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
The Hospital Council strives to provide opportunities where hospitals, politicians, community leaders, other advocacy groups, health care providers, clinics, government agency leaders can come together to partner to solve health related challenges facing a local area. The Hospital Council assists members in implementing programs to overcome operational challenges and improve patient care.
