About Us

“Simply put, healthcare quality is getting the right care to the right patient at the right time – every time.”

Carolyn Clancy, MD, Former Director, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, in testimony to the US Senate

Our Legacy of Quality Improvement

Our organization was established in 1984 as the Central Florida Health Care Coalition with the motto, “Quality First, Always.” Using the power and influence of Florida’s leading employers, we have accomplished impactful, groundbreaking work in improving the quality of health care. To reflect our statewide reach and influence, we changed our name to the Florida Health Care Coalition in 2004.

In 2019, we became the Florida Alliance for Healthcare Value, a name that demonstrates our commitment to driving value in health care and prevents confusion with first-responder “healthcare coalitions” charged with overseeing Florida’s disaster preparedness and response efforts.
