The Hospital Community Collaborative is a multi-year program made up of three, six-month learning sprints. Each learning sprint consists of 20 teams. The teams are comprised of an AHA member hospital and a cross-sector partner(s) of their choosing (e.g., a community-based social service agency, local health department, business partner, or other). Prospective participants can learn more about HCC’s eligibility criteria in our online application.
