Strategic Partnerships with Hospitals

Thursday, July 21, from 2-3 pm ET

Webinar Description

In today's ever-changing healthcare landscape, strategic partnerships between hospitals and nonprofit organizations can result in improved patient care, better access to skilled services, and effectiveness. How do you approach a hospital system, and how do you ensure that the sharing of costs, resources, and expertise will result in better patient-centered care? Hear promising practices, challenges to anticipate, and lessons learned along the way from two LSA members who have launched successful partnerships with hospital systems. Join representatives from Lutheran Social Services of Illinois to learn about their Project IMPACT program, which provides trained crisis counselors in the ER to assist individuals that may be incapacitated by mental illness, substance abuse and/or domestic violence, relieving the burden on medical personnel. Learn about Lutheran Settlement House's "STOP IPV" program, which places advocates and counselors inside of hospitals to support patients and to provide specialized training on intimate partner violence for medical personnel. We will explore the nuts and bolts of partnering, including approaching the hospital, developing the program, finding a hospital champion, and lessons learned along the way.

Please join us on Thursday, July 21, from 2:00-3:00 pm ET to learn more.


Julie Kovacin, Associate Executive Director of Development Home and Community Services, Lutheran Social Services of Illinois; Matthew Hammoudeh - LSSI Consultant; Marcella Slick, LSW, Assistant Director of the Bilingual Domestic Violence Program, Lutheran Settlement House
