JHHSA, Vol. 25 No. 2, (2002)

Meeting the health needs of a community involves developing relation-
ships with a wide range of partners. The purpose of this study was to
determine the effect of environmental uncertainty on the level of inter-
organizational relations among nonprofit hospitals with the intent of
providing community benefit. Findings indicate that nonprofit hospitals
in California are collaborating to provide community benefit. Signi-
ficant relationships were found between select hospital characteristics,
perceived environmental uncertainty, and components of interorganiza-
tional relations.
