A Strong History of Supporting Community Hospitals

In 1996, Community Hospital Corporation (CHC) was established by a group of not-for-profit and community-owned healthcare systems with the intention of preserving the not-for-profit status of community-based hospitals. Driven by the passion they shared, this group of organizations formed CHC to protect community hospitals from acquisition by investor-owned hospital systems.

Since its inception, we remain a not-for-profit company whose sole mission is to help hospitals remain community-operated and governed. CHC owns, manages and consults with hospitals across the United States.

CHC Consulting was founded in 2006, to assist hospitals needing strategic consulting services, assistance with special projects and opportunities for joint ventures.

Based in Plano, Texas, our organization provides community hospitals with the resources and experience they need. CHC offers practical solutions that help community hospitals enhance efficiencies, improve quality and strengthen financial stability—and most importantly, we help preserve and protect community control of the hospital.
