The Mile High Health Alliance brings together stakeholders from medical care, behavioral health care, public health, and social and community services, to collaboratively address the city’s most difficult health challenges and achieve better health for all Denver residents. The Alliance was created to fulfill an important objective identified in Denver’s Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) – namely to form an alliance of important stakeholder organizations in Denver to increase access to care, better coordinate medical care and social services, and decrease health care costs.

When you join the Alliance, your organization will have a seat on the Board of Directors, the central governing body of the Alliance, and will participate in setting and implementing the priorities and strategies of the Alliance. Your organizational representative will also be eligible to run for a seat on the Executive Committee.
