Health care outlook on Election Day

Fourteen hospitals and health systems are teaming up to address the economic, racial and environmental disparities that can lead to poor health. They’ll have five years to invest the funds in the communities they serve, such as financing affordable housing developments, new grocery stores in food deserts, child care centers and minority- and women-owned businesses. “This is a big shift in the industry,” said David Zuckerman, Healthcare Anchor Network director. The network convenes health systems to share best practices on improving community health and is coordinating the new initiative.
