Bringing the best in health improvement

The Community Health Improvement Network (CHIN) facilitates collaboration among community and provider partners to create joint programs and cooperative ventures that improve and sustain health care access and quality delivery, especially for underserved and underprivileged populations.


CHIN is part of The Montgomery Institute (TMI)–dedicated to “Upbuilding People and Places Sonny’s Way.” TMI celebrates the exceptional leadership legacy of the late Congressman G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery and continues to build on his lifetime of work to upbuild people and places in the region around his Meridian hometown.
