The Chautauqua County Health Network (CCHN), an organization composed of the four hospital organizations in Chautauqua County, their governing boards and medical staff, is dedicated to strengthening the local health and wellness delivery system.
CCHN advances the interests of hospitals and patients by strengthening the economic viability of hospitals and other health care providers, promoting access to quality health care related services, facilitating partnerships to address community needs, planning for the efficient delivery of care, and developing appropriate health resources.


CCHN defines and shapes the future of health care in Chautauqua County.  

CCHN develops innovative models for rational health care delivery systems through program development, evaluation, tracking policy decisions, and advocacy. We provide leadership in achieving creative solutions to community needs while maintaining health care providers’ viability. We facilitate forums to openly share information and explore issues relevant to health care through promoting collaboration between hospitals, providers, community organizations and policy makers.


The following shared values guide and inspire CCHN’s efforts to generate positive changes in the health care systems of Chautauqua County through objectivity, clarity of ideas, accountability and credibility:

  • Integrity 
  • Communication 
  • Relationships
  • Synergy
  • Innovation  


CCHN’s projects and initiatives reflect our support of The Triple Aim — which is the simultaneous pursuit of three aims: improving the experience of care, improving the health of the local population, and reducing per capita costs of health care.   

Successful redesign of health care is a community by community task and CCHN has played a key leadership role in Chautauqua County in keeping the dialog and the system moving forward. Through planning and partnerships, CCHN has successfully garnered and leveraged resources, promoted the integration of clinical services and best practices and helped to improve the health and wellness delivery system overall.
