We are recognized locally and nationally for an innovative approach to building healthy, equitable communities by integrating health care with services that address the social influencers of health.
Hennepin Health received national recognition for a readmission-reduction program that helped get housing, transportation, help with food and other services for members experiencing homelessness who use HCMC, the county hospital.
In collaboration with Hennepin County, Hennepin Health is helping families affected by substance use disorder achieve recovery, economic mobility and family unity. The goal is to reduce the number of children removed from their home and keep families together by building capacity of safe, affordable recovery housing and providing wrap-around supports.
We are mentioned in a national report by U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex M. Azar II in Report to Congress: Innovative State Initiatives and Strategies for Providing Housing-Related Services and Supports under a State Medicaid Program to Individuals with Substance Use Disorders Who Are Experiencing or at Risk of Experiencing Homelessness. Secretary Azar highlights our work to implement housing navigation services strategies to serve our members.
