Community partnerships are central to the structure of THT and essential to how we do our work. Through our innovative structure, in which competitors have learned the benefit of collaboration, we link public and private healthcare providers in an ongoing effort to improve the health of our community. Building on this core collaboration of Trenton’s two hospitals, its only Federally Qualified Health Center, and the City Department of Health, we have reached beyond the healthcare system to engage with behavioral, social service, educational, and faith-based organizations to build knowledge and opportunities for all in our geography to lead healthier, more productive lives.
We work with local partners and the surrounding community to “build up” Brunswick Avenue neighborhoods from the Battle Monument Park to Capital Health Regional Medical Center to create a “Safe and Healthy Corridor.”
