The Center for Child and Community Health (CCCH) is the bridge between UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland and the broader community. CCCH strengthens the hospital's focus on community needs, health equity, disease prevention and promotion of healthy kids in today's rapidly changing environment.

The hospital has served as a pillar of the community for over 100 years, and continues to care for children from all walks of life. CCCH is responsible for community and government relations, the incubation and management of innovative patient-centered programs, research related to social determinants of health, and the meeting of the hospital's "community benefits" obligations.

To achieve those objectives, CCCH promotes collaboration among other departments and UCSF campuses, and develops and strengthens partnerships with community organizations, agencies, educational institutions, and local and state governmental bodies. CCCH is a step that's both practical and symbolic, ensuring that UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland maintains and grows its commitment to the ideals of health promotion, prevention, equity, cultural humility and community.
