Warrior Centric Healthcare Foundation (WCHF)
and the Veteran Medical Neighborhood Consortium (VMNC)
WCHF – VMNC Strategy
The WCHF and Veteran Medical Neighborhood Consortium (VMNC) serves as the “Veteran facing” primary hub of coordination and collaboration. This is achieved via two pathways:
1) Clinical - through WCHF clinic partners, providers, allied healthcare professionals and social support personnel
2) Non-clinical – through WCHF VMNC members / partners (i.e., community centers and their leaders, clergy, faith-based organizations, employers, public health agencies, veteran centric businesses, food banks, schools, etc.).
With WCHF, Veterans and their families as the essential core element within the neighborhood, the health needs of the individual (Veteran), aspects of the population (their families) and overall community (where they live, work, play, and pray), the opportunity to optimize health and wellness diminish disparities and social determinants is increased significantly.
THE WCHF - VMNC STRATEGIC PILLARS
WCHF and its Consortium Partners envision communities that possess the knowledge and capacity to not only identify and address service-related challenges, but to embrace, support, and empower the warriors and families who experience them.
