Advancing Community Health

CLC facilitates regional convenings with health care, public health, and community stakeholders to explore community health data, priorities, and improvement strategies and identify opportunities for alignment across institutions.

Diversity, Health, Equity & Inclusion

Committed to diversity, inclusion and addressing health, racial and social inequities by fostering a culture that values differences and similarities equally.

Advancing Southern California

Communities Lifting Communities (CLC) rose out of the Hospital Association of Southern California (HASC), a network of 180 member hospitals and 35 health systems, plus numerous related professional associations and associate members, all with a common goal: to improve the operating environment for hospitals and the health status of the communities they serve.

We are dedicated to effectively advancing the interests of hospitals in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
