Improving health, transforming care and disrupting inequitable systems
through the Centering group model
Centering Healthcare Institute imagines a U.S. healthcare system that offers not just medical interventions, but combats isolation and builds communities, empowers and educates patients, and serves as a partner to connect the most vulnerable with resources that contribute to overall health. We are driven to create a future where the risk of preterm birth, the inequities of Black women dying from pregnancy related causes and the disparities in early childhood are greatly reduced - so that every child has the potential to enjoy future life chances, social and economic opportunities and overall well-being.
When we expand the healthcare visit to include parental learning and connection, we can have a profound impact on health outcomes and increase the chances each family has to thrive.
CHI is transforming healthcare delivery and outcomes for all families, beginning with pregnancy and early childhood, by expanding access to our evidence-based framework for billable group medical visits. With over two decades of experience, CHI has successfully scaled Centering to 582 healthcare practices serving nearly 60,000 families nationwide.
