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.

In 2017, HC3 grew membership to 62 companies, brought leading healthcare thought leaders to help navigate policy reform, and delivered a report outlining the state of the healthcare industry in Chicago and confirming the city’s strategic assets.

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.

  • Convene

    Chicago’s health care leaders through regular programming. We are responsive to institutional needs and address market opportunities in collaboration with other civic leaders.

  • Expand

    membership through active community engagement and strong continuity between members to drive unique interactions and partnerships in the market.

  • Develop

    and support sub-groups that form around specific strategic focus areas related to programming or other ad hoc interests.

  • Support

    business development and innovation by providing a platform to foster connections and lend insights to Chicago’s rapidly-growing start-up community.
