Project Description

Facilitation of business model development, stakeholder input gathering: Cheshire Medical Center and Healthy Monadnock, Keene, NH


In the earliest stages of what has become one of New Hampshire’s most successful collective impact endeavors, Healthy Monadnock, Cheshire Medical Center sought input on a sustainable structure for a grassroots community health program. Full Circle Consulting conducted focus groups of community leaders, project participants and major donors to explore sensitive issues relating to shared funding responsibility and authority for decision-making, as well as conducting a nation-wide scan of successful models elsewhere.  The ideas from local leaders, integrated with lessons learned nationally, served as the foundation for Healthy Monadnock’s amazing work in improving the health of Monadnock area citizens.
