From Hospitals To Community
National Health Foundation was founded in 1973 to conduct research and educational programs related to healthcare delivery, particularly in hospital settings. Just as the field of public health has evolved over the years, so has National Health Foundation’s purpose.
Today, we know that health starts where people live, learn, work and play. NHF is committed to improving the health of under-resourced communities by partnering with residents, local organizations, and government entities in order to achieve health equity for all.
NHF’s four key health equity initiatives are:
safe shelter nights for our recuperative care guests
Dollars in food benefits accessed for families and infused into the local economy
Individuals received direct assistance in accessing food benefits
Million in cost savings to healthcare system by providing recuperative care
