NCHN is a national professional membership organization comprised exclusively of health networks, alliances, and/or network stakeholders dedicated to supporting the success of health networks.
Health networks face unique challenges that only other network leaders know and understand. Through NCHN, networks gain access to resources developed specifically for health networks and to a large pool of leaders who understand, face, and excel under similar constraints, demands, and opportunities. Few organizations function as networks do, thus making the important connections among national leaders invaluable in identifying new programs, overcoming barriers, and finding knowledge sources that match network needs. NCHN is the only national organization dedicated specifically to supporting health networks.
