Welcome to the Northwest Georgia Healthcare Partnership
Imagine 30 leaders of business and industry, health care providers, local government, education and public health volunteering to put aside their personal agendas.
Now, imagine the leaders of these sectors each offering their resources.
Finally, imagine these leaders working together, as a collaborative effort, to find sustainable solutions to the community’s emerging health issues—in the early morning hours before the work day gets started.
If it sounds like a progressive scene from the future that couldn’t possibly exist in our community, think again.
Twenty years ago, local leaders made this “futuristic” effort a reality with the creation of the Northwest Georgia Healthcare Partnership, a 501(c)(3) organization serving Whitfield and Murray Counties. Year after year, the Partnership benefits from a strong commitment by the community. Year after year, the Healthcare Partnership continues to improve the overall health status by identifying sustainable solutions to significant health issues via innovation, benchmarking and application of best practices.
It was of the utmost importance of Healthcare Partnership founders that the organization was not driven by just one or two local entities. It truly had to be a community-oriented collaboration even while addressing issues related to the topic of health.
