The Legacy of Healthcare Collaboration

In Memoriam

In the spirit of unity we dedicate this website to the life and legacy of Dr. Kenneth H. Cohn who passed away June 24, 2015.

Kens books, articles, research, videos and information will continue to appear on this site to extend the message of healthcare collaboration to his community.


Dr. Cohn’s passion has been helping physicians, hospital executives, nurses, and board members to work more interdependently. He experienced fulfillment in seeing skeptical physicians act like owners to improve care for their communities.

Ken helped hospital executives become more comfortable with clinical issues, allowing them to ask patient-related questions without fear of ignorance or embarrassment.

Over the years Ken realized that physicians enjoy learning from fellow physicians, as he helped scores of physicians learn techniques of active listening, win-win negotiation, and conflict resolution historically not approached in medical school, residency, or fellowship.

We hope that you enjoyed Dr. Ken Cohn’s seminars, speaker events, books, articles and mentoring projects over the years. We thank you for your business, support, leadership and colleagueship. May the empowering message of functional collaboration spread throughout your entire healthcare organization, community and world.

Please enjoy this website as a reference for the legacy of Healthcare Collaboration.
