Creating a Culture of Health

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation characterizes a Culture of Health as one in which getting healthy and staying healthy is a fundamental and guiding social value. With the shift toward population health, hospitals and health care systems have ample opportunity to collaborate with community partners, develop strategies to address community health concerns, and catalyze change. This resource page from the American Hospital Association's Hospitals in Pursuit of Excellence offers a guide on "Hospital-based Strategies for Creating a Culture of Health."

This guide discusses research and trends, outlines a framework for hospitals to foster a culture of health, and presents case studies on innovative initiatives. The page also includes links to information on population health and community health improvement.
