 Welcome to NCHN

The National Cooperative of Health Networks Association (NCHN) is a national professional membership organization comprised exclusively of health networks, alliances, and/or  consortiums dedicated to supporting the success of health networks.

NCHN is a not-for-profit national membership organization, which is governed by its members through an elected Board of Directors. Founded in the late 1980s, NCHN was incorporated in 1995. NCHN is a dynamic, progressive, and nationally recognized professional organization that is relevant for health networks regardless of their stage of development.


 NCHN Business Partner Features 




Access TeleCare is proud to partner with the National Cooperative of Health Networks Association to transform the way healthcare is delivered to NHCN member hospitals. Through Access TeleCare telemedicine programs, organizations can realize significant cost reductions while boosting revenue. Recently, Access TeleCare partnered with a group of Tennessee hospitals to provide teleNeurohospitalists services, managing inpatient care for all neurology patinets from admission through discharge. The results: a 50% increase in neurology revenue, 60% reduction in neurology patient transfers, and 148% increase in neurology admission revenue for post-acute rehabilitation.

Hillary Lyons Associates happily joins NCHN in the mission of strengthening health networks. Beginning with the belief that an engaged community is a pivotal resource for breakthrough achievements in the mission of care, they offer members both training and consult to assist in building increased local advocacy and sustainable philanthropic support.


 The Hillary Lyons Associates Difference


The basic premise: Community leaders who are involved with your organization know more. Those who know more, generally care more. Those who care more, give more. Those who give, make the best requests of others. We strive to build a more thoughtful, enterprising capacity for continuous philanthropy… so that local healthcare organizations can be a more powerful and sustainable force for good.

For many nonprofits, capital campaigns have been the traditional answer to funding their capital needs, but capital campaigns are a short-term episodic form of fundraising. They are beneficial if capital resource needs are also short-term and episodic. Over the course of 50+ years of work in healthcare exclusively, we’ve found that there are rarely any shortages of capital needs in community hospitals. Our focus, by contrast, is backed by a proven approach to increase charitable support, social capital, and marketing strength every year, every day. Our client work is distinguished by the presence of strong local volunteer leadership organized to expand community relationships and philanthropic support.
