Thank You to Our Funding Partners
The Health Collaborative began informally in 1997 when San Antonio’s major healthcare organizations agreed to put aside their competitive business practices to conduct a comprehensive health needs assessment. The evolution in 2000 to an incorporated entity with a long-range strategic plan was in response to the founding members’ interest in improving the health status of the community by working together.
The Health Collaborative has developed into a powerful network of citizens, community organizations and businesses. The result is a more robust, less duplicative, more synergistic approach to solving critical community health needs, while efficiently utilizing resources.
