RWJBarnabas Health part of group announcing $700M pledge toward community health

RWJBarnabas Health was one of 14 hospitals and health systems nationwide to announce Wednesday a commitment of over $700 million for place-based investing to create strong and healthy communities. “In the last two-and-a-half years, the HAN members have moved forward to collaborate on strategies and to align their business operations to tackle the structural and economic drivers of poor health through place-based investing, as well as through local, inclusive hiring and procurement,” Healthcare Anchor Network Director Dave Zuckerman said. “Anchor mission work utilizes and leverages local community resources to address jobs, training, small business support and equitable community development. It’s individual and community wealth building.”
