ARHN Regional Community Health Assessment Reports

A regional group, facilitated by the Adirondack Rural Health Network (ARHN) has provided the forum for area hospitals, local health departments and community-based organizations to conduct a comprehensive health assessment and take part in a regional planning process to address the New York State Department of Health Commissioner’s public health priorities identified in the Prevention Agenda toward the Healthiest State.

The regional effort creates a synergy that allows all of the members to move towards common goals in a way that is both efficient and effective. ARHN provides a much needed forum for the various community partners to share resources and to collaborate on the development of a comprehensive collection and analysis of data regarding the health issues and needs in Essex, Fulton, Hamilton, Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties.

ARHN CHA Update, August 2011

Since publication of the 2009 CHA report, the ARHN region has seen many new initiatives and programs aimed at improving the health of communities by increasing physical activity and nutrition as well as improving access to quality health care. Community gardens are growing, more towns are adopting complete streets policies, health care organizations are continuing their diligent efforts to provide quality health care to all, and work continues to foster the homegrown pipeline that has developed to plan for the future health care workforce in the ARHN region.

Read the 2011 CHA Update Report to learn more about how public health departments, hospitals, not-for-profit groups, local governments, churches, schools, and concerned community members are working together for the betterment of our communities.
