Join major health care providers in our region in collaborating for a healthier community.
CHP’s role is to facilitate coordination among health care providers and to identify ways we can work together to address community health issues. We are a membership-based organization whose sole purpose is to provide a forum for open dialogue based on an underlying value of doing what is best for our community.
Be part of community-based solutions and help to ensure that health care decisions are made locally.
Why join CHP?
CHP members have a seat at the table.
Members work together with other providers to improve the health of the community. CHP sponsors free programs on a variety of fascinating and relevant topics, like health information exchange, health care reform, and overall community health goals.
Benefits go both ways.
While we continue to improve the health of our community, we help our members as well. At our quarterly meetings, coalition members get to hear about new and exciting things happening in their community.
Talk to us more about how CHP membership benefits your organization.
CHP members are committed to collaboration.
Dive in and join a CHP committee or work group on a specific topic or issue, or run for a seat on the Board of Directors. Make your voice heard.
Not a member? You can still donate services.
You do not have to be a CHP member to be a provider in Community Care or to donate services to the CATCH system, but being a member entitles you (and staff of your organization) to attend free networking and informational meetings, run for Board membership, and join committees and work groups.

What are my dues? What do they cover?
Most of CHP’s operational costs are covered by dues received from members. Dues are tiered based on the organization’s revenue; contact us for the current dues. Individual memberships are for individuals who are not representing an organization. Nonprofit organizations should use the total dollar amount on line 12 of Form 990 as the basis for calculating dues; for profits should use total gross revenues.
