David Zuckerman, the founder and president of the Health Network, joins me today to discuss how hospitals and health systems can improve the health of their communities through impact investments. These investments focus on improving housing, food access, transportation, infrastructure and community economic opportunity.

David explains that the Healthcare Anchor Network works with hospitals and health systems across the country that have embraced a mission framework that involves identifying where business pain points intersect with community priorities. He also discusses different approaches, stages and examples of impact and place-based investments.

David emphasizes that investment dollars can serve a dual purpose by providing financial returns as well as social impact to the community. He believes that these investments are crucial in improving the health of the community without using discretionary dollars that may be needed for clinical services or other healthcare priorities.

The importance of housing and stable employment to health is highlighted by research, making investment in these areas a priority to improve community health and well-being. David believes that these investments are not only important for improving individual lives but also for creating thriving communities.

I hope you will find this episode informative and motivating. Tune in next month for another episode of The Chair File as we continue our journey towards better healthcare for all.
