Groundbreaking Community Health Partnership for LI Launched
Hospitals and both county health departments spearheading this innovative effort
On Friday, January 10, 2014, public health leaders and health care providers from the region gathered at the offices of the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council in Hauppauge to witness the launch of an historic community health initiative known as the Long Island Health Collaborative (LIHC). The Long Island Health Collaborative is a bi-county effort to help Long Islanders improve their health. A key component of LIHC's work is a comprehensive website that connects Long Islanders to the health and social services they need to stay well or get well.
