The mission of Health Connect South is to serve the health community as a sustainable platform for regional health collaborations. Through our collective work, we seek to broadly define and advance the Southeast’s role in the future of health. Serving as a gateway between health industry silos, we seek to provide unique and meaningful partnership opportunities in health.

We will advance our mission by bringing together top-tier health leaders and innovators across disciplines to engage each other in collaborative conversations focused on meeting identified health needs through leveraging supporting ideas and institutions.



Though the Southeast is home to world-class health assets, there is surprisingly little interdisciplinary clarity around areas of focus, impact, needs and capacity within and among our health assets. We believe such heightened clarity accelerates new opportunities for geographically advantaged collaborations, unlocking and advancing important advances in health.



Health Connect South was created to build a first-of-its-kind sustainable platform for regional health collaborations. We are building a vibrant ecosystem of leading health innovators, key decision makers and next generation leaders throughout the Southeast region.
