Community Health

About the Alliance

The Northwest Hospital Alliance serves as a collaborative network to assist our members in offering high quality, cost effective health care in our communities.

The Alliance is organized to ensure each hospital’s autonomy, while providing support to address changes in the healthcare environment. The cornerstone of the network relationship is the preservation of community hospital independence and economic strength. Each member hospital maintains its organizational structure and the identity and image that has made it visible in the local community. Each member is represented on the board.

Peer Groups

Peer Groups

By developing solutions in unison, the members aim to improve the quality of patient care, improve the health of the rural population, and reduce per capita costs of health care services. Most of the groups meet on a quarterly basis, typically for 2 to 4 hours per meeting.
