To advance health equity through key partnerships with public health agencies, non-profit community health centers, and other community organizations.
Health Care Coalition of Southern Oregon (HCCSO) was born in 1990. Leaders of safety net clinics and public health agencies in Jackson, Josephine, and Douglas Counties joined together to reduce duplication in services, and collaborate to improve the health of Southern Oregon residents.
Health Care Coalition is a non-profit organization that acts as the collaborative backbone organization for Collective Impact Initiatives that advance health equity. It supports joint projects through coordination, facilitation, training, data management, and project management. HCCSO convenes the Southern Oregon Perinatal Task Forces and the Douglas and Josephine County Healthy Start program.
Health Care Coalition of Southern Oregon has a successful track record of securing and managing federal and state grants. These include Rural Health Outreach, Federal Healthy Start, Oregon State Innovation Models, Oregon Health Authority Office of Equity and Inclusion, and Health Insurance Outreach and Enrollment Assistance.
