The Center for Community Health (CCH) is a collaborative between public health agencies, non-profit health plans, and not-for-profit hospital/health systems in the seven-county metropolitan area in Minnesota. 



Our Mission

To advance community health, well-being, and equity through collective understanding of needs and innovative approaches to foster community strengths.


CCH Guiding Principles

  • Our work will focus on what can be done across all three sectors
  • Our level of engagement will reflect our respective priorities and capacity
  • Members will be clear about who they are representing when contributing opinions and ideas
  • Our work will be data driven
  • We will strive for efficiency and avoid added work
  • Our efforts should add value to our work
  • We will avoid areas that might raise antitrust concerns, such as reimbursement matters and payor/provider relationships
  • Membership in the CCH does not preclude members from doing individual work in their own sectors, and
  • We will strive to create/achieve health equity
