Founded in 1974 and located in Rochester, NY, Common Ground Health is one of the nation’s oldest and most effective regional health planning organizations.


We bring together health care providers, insurers, consumers and other partners to find common ground on our area’s most pressing health challenges. Using the region's most comprehensive health data, together we hammer out strategies for better care, smarter spending and healthier people. Through all of these activities, Common Ground Health seeks to promote population health improvement and reduce health care disparities in the Finger Lakes region. 


Our Common Ground Health foundation is built on relationships with one another. We are fact-gatherers, conveners, engagers, advocates, coaches, mentors and much more. Our staff is the most valuable resource the organization has for advancing that mission.

We approach our relationships at Common Ground Health with integrity, transparency and objectivity. We assume good intent and recognize that we are each individuals and unique parts of this team.

We strive to create and maintain a physically, emotionally, and socially, healthy work environment. We want our colleagues to look forward to coming to work each day to deliver the highest quality of work possible. We will strive to act as a healthy and collaborative workplace as we bring that message to others.

Everyone brings a story to work. We each have a perspective that is different than the others’ and can enhance our work together. We will embrace these differences as part of the process to high quality outcomes. We celebrate “teachable moments,” even and especially when they may be uncomfortable. Our organization and our stories are ever changing, growing, and improving.
