One of the most unique health and wellness models in America, Trina Radske-Suchan and her staff spent 8-years creating, developing and managing a community-based, medically-integrated cutting-edge program designed to achieve outstanding results for patients, clients, families and the community.
As the model for healthcare pivots toward stronger disease prevention, there is increasing interest in effective population-based prevention programs. Health care organizations are tasked with improving the quality of medical care and population health, while at the same time reducing health care costs. This mandate has been given in recognition of social and environmental factors that influence health beyond the traditional medical care environment. The desire to influence broader determinants of health has led health care organizations to form collaborative partnerships with municipal and community organizations.
This is the beginning of our story. Community Health Partners, LLC (CHP) is a community-based organization that focuses on a continuum of care across the spectrum of prevention. CHP was founded in April 2017 after working for 8 years prior in the medical-based fitness industry. One of the most unique health and wellness models in America, Trina Radske-Suchan and her staff spent 8-years creating, developing and managing a community-based, medically-integrated system. The original YMCA Healthy Living Center in Clive, Iowa received physician referrals from over 1100 providers around and outside the state and boasted over 20 different medical-based exercise and wellness programs. Nearly half of this YMCA’s membership came on a physician referral. This is where our experience, skills, and passion grew as we worked with thousands of individuals with health risk, chronic disease and functional impairments. We created a unique delivery of health coaching and a model for transitioning patients from clinical care to community living.
Trina and her staff are now offering this successful model to communities nationwide. At the foundation, CHP works collaboratively with a variety of community partners and stakeholders committed to sharing resources, expertise and vision for a healthier community that is based on the idea of seamless integration between (a) clinical care, (b) community-based resources, and (c) self-management coaching and education. This community-based, medically-integrated system is person-centered first, reinforced by a provider-driven referral network and supported by a team of allied health professionals, health coaches, fitness experts and community partners. Health outcomes are measured, tracked, and reported through digital therapeutics technology to further support optimal health behavior change. The result is a truly supportive environment that ignites the Spirit, engages the Mind, and strengthens the Body.
Community Health Partners, LLC takes population-based health care to the next level, impacting one person at a time, one community at a time.
