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

Our collaborative of health plans, hospitals, and public health agencies will share data and processes to identify health needs and implement innovative approaches to advance community health, well-being, and equity.

Our Vision

A healthy and thriving Twin Cities metro area population achieved through collaboration, data sharing, and collective action.

  • 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
