Community Health

Communities trust hospitals to provide quality care and education and use them as a resource for health, wellness, prevention and care. 


Population Health
Population health is an approach to health care that aims to improve the health of an entire population. The Georgia Hospital Association participates in several initiatives with community partners nationally and around the state to achieve a healthy Georgia. Efforts focus on improving the delivery of high-quality health care through clinical decision support and patient self-management.
