Health Care Council of Chicago (HC3)

The Health Care Council of Chicago (HC3) is a collaboration that enables Chicagoland health care companies to expand the intellectual, technical, human, and financial capital required to succeed in the value-based health care economy while concurrently raising Chicago’s profile as an American health care epicenter.

What is HC3?

HC3 is a partnership between MATTER and Leavitt Partners, a health care intelligence firm founded by former HHS Secretary and Governor Mike Leavitt, to foster connections, share perspectives, form strategic alliances, and advance Chicago’s profile as a hub of innovation and transformation for America’s rapidly changing health care system. Read HC3’s first annual “State of Chicago Health Care” white paper.

What We Stand For

The health care industry is changing, and we’re here to ensure that the change is in the right direction to increase efficiency and improve outcomes. We’re convening leaders to collaborate on solutions for tomorrow.
