The Camden Coalition was founded in 2002 by Dr. Jeffrey Brenner, a family doctor in Camden NJ.
As a coalition of Camden health care providers, community partners, and advocates, we are committed to elevating the health of patients facing the most complex medical and social challenges.
We are a non-profit organization working in the community to improve health and reduce costs. We innovate and test health care delivery models to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost of their care using data driven, human-centered practices. Drawing on the experiences of our clinical team and patients, Coalition staff also work to transform health care cost and delivery at the policy level.
With over a decade of experience working with vulnerable populations in the city, we share our learning with other communities across the nation to help them implement our philosophies and methods.
A transformed healthcare system that ensures every individual receives whole-person care rooted in authentic healing relationships.
Spark a field and movement that unites communities of caregivers in Camden and across the nation to improve the wellbeing of individuals with complex health and social needs.
