The Trenton Health Team is an innovative collaboration including the city of Trenton’s two hospitals, St. Francis Medical Center and Capital Health; its only Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), Henry J. Austin Health Center, and the City of Trenton Department of Health and Human Services. By forging partnerships, creating new educational pathways and engaging city residents in creative ways, the Trenton Health Team is transforming healthcare for residents. We believe that by collaborating we can actually drive down costs while providing significantly better, more comprehensive and effective care.
Since its founding, the Trenton Health Team (THT) has been harnessing the collective power of leaders, partners, and community members to advance its mission to transform healthcare for the city by forming a committed partnership with the community to expand access to high quality, coordinated healthcare. THT is unique in its public-private, community-wide collaborative structure and in cultivating a shared commitment to health improvement throughout the six zip codes of Trenton.
Trenton Health Team was formed in response to the healthcare crisis in Trenton, with the intent to reform healthcare by establishing a holistic model.
We serve residents of the six zip codes of Trenton, NJ, with a particular emphasis on the vulnerable and underserved. We work to increase access to quality healthcare for all as we strive to build health literacy, including knowledge about prevention and opportunities for healthy lifestyle choices.
The staff of Trenton Health Team is comprised of a diverse group of individuals with a shared commitment to ensuring access to quality care for all community residents.
Trenton Health Team works closely with representatives of a variety of municipal, county and state agencies, social service groups, the faith community and higher education.
Trenton Health Team first came together in 2006 as the result of a report commissioned by Mayor Douglas Palmer to assess the impact of the proposed closure of Mercer hospital.
You will find our offices at One West State Street, Fourth Floor, Trenton, NJ 08608, located at the corner of West State Street and South Warren Street – also known as “The Corner Historic.”
Originally formed as a membership corporation consisting of THT’s four founding institutions, Trenton Health Team is now governed by a 15-member Board of Directors.
