Health Council of East Central Florida

The Health Council of East Central Florida, Inc. (HCECF) is a private, non-profit health care planning organization providing research, program development, and evaluation services that enable community-based health organizations to improve population health. 


We serve the four-county region of Brevard, Orange, Osceola and Seminole in Florida. 


Learn more about our governance, history, and team contacts: See About Us and Governance.


The Health Council gathers and reports hospital and nursing home utilization, conducts community and behavioral health needs assessments, and facilitates strategic planning. See Health Planning.


With funding from partner organizations, the Health Council administers a seven-county cancer control collaborative, operates a health network that serves the uninsured and underinsured in Seminole County, and provides chronic care home coach visits using paramedics. See Health Services.


Organizations receiving grant funding that requires third party evaluation of funding and program outcomes use the Health Council team of evaluators to monitor and report performance. See Program Performance.


Local health councils have been approved time and again over the years as what is termed single source service providers.  The Health Council of East Central Florida develops flexible project proposals for government agencies and businesses seeking to avoid what can be a lengthy and costly Request for Proposal process.  Contact Ken Peach at 866.991.3652, extension 702 or email to receive Single Source Service Provider documentation or to request a single source project proposal.
