Our Mission

The St. Louis Integrated Health Network, through collaboration and partnership, strives for quality, accessible and affordable healthcare services for all residents of Metropolitan St. Louis, with an emphasis on the medically underserved.

Equal Healthcare for All

The St. Louis Integrated Health Network (IHN) is a healthcare intermediary whose members collaborate across institutional boundaries to co-create and advance a common agenda focused on developing solutions that eliminate healthcare disparities by improving the quality, accessibility and affordability of healthcare for St. Louis’ most vulnerable and underserved citizens. IHN’s members represent the vast majority of our region’s safety net healthcare providers including the leaders of local community health centers, hospital systems, academic medical schools, public health departments and other safety net institutions.

IHN anchors and incubates new models of care that reimagine a healthcare system that works equitably for the all St. Louisans by prioritizing the needs of low income patients. As exemplified by collective efforts like the Care Transitions Initiative and Re-Entry Community Linkages, (RE-LINK), IHN’s work focuses on solving complex, systemic healthcare problems related to access and quality with the goal of creating community-wide solutions to the most challenging public health problems of our time. Making safety net services more efficient, effective and equitable for these populations creates the conditions necessary for a stronger, healthier St. Louis.

Practiced with fidelity, these principles help to ensure the alignment of our mission and operations.
