Improving Community Health Is Complex

For many health care organizations or community partners:

  • It is challenging to keep up with massive amounts of health care data that changes constantly.

  • It is frustrating being so busy in your day-to-day role that you lack the bandwidth to address the problems you encounter.

  • Staying compliant with ever-changing regulations.

  • Maintaining health care quality in the face of financial challenges and workforce shortages can feel overwhelming.

At the Foundation for Healthy Communities

We know that innovative partnerships can develop the right tools and strategies to help individuals achieve their highest potential for health and well being in the communities where they live, work, learn and play.

Bringing Stakeholders Together to Address Community Health Needs

We achieve our mission of improving total population health through our dynamic partnerships between hospitals, medical providers, health plans, health care stakeholders, and community organizations and individuals.


FHC is the quality arm of the New Hampshire Hospital Association (NHHA). It therefore has a unique relationship with an advocacy-focused organization that can help direct policy changes that support our work.

A Message from our Executive Director

We are thrilled to share with you the new website of the Foundation for Healthy Communities at! After months of hard work and determination, we are officially launching our new digital platform that modernizes and enhances communication with hospital and health care partners, state and federal public health officials, funders and the general public.


This website was designed to offer a clean, modern design, easy navigation and helpful resources to be utilized so that as our partners engage in community health improvement initiatives, they have the best information to be successful. You will find a whole new information architecture behind the content sections of the site, and a number of interactive features for knowledge-sharing and collaboration. Looking ahead, as we consider all of the learnings from the pandemic and the new commitments we must make in these uncertain times, as a trusted convener of partners across the health care continuum, we are excited to continue enhancing our digital communications to keep all of us connected and informed.


As this site is still new, we ask for your patience as we spend a few more weeks migrating some critical content from our old website, making new updates to important upcoming activities, and fixing a few persistent bugs with our developers and design team.


In the meantime, we invite you to experience the new site and engage with its content, features and benefits. Connected, we can improve the health and well-being of all in New Hampshire.
