Schuyler Hospital has announced that their 2016-2018 Community Service Plan is now available on-line.
The report, completed in December 2016, was the result of working closely with Schuyler County Public Health, as well as a number of community-based organizations and focus groups, and reviewing a variety of studies and data.
Schuyler Hospital and the partner agencies decided to tackle three areas under the New York State Department of Health priority of the prevention of chronic disease: 1.) Reduce obesity in children and adults, as well as increase access to high quality chronic disease preventive care and management in both clinical and community settings. 2.) Promote child health with a focus on dental health. 3.) Prevent substance abuse and other mental emotional behavioral disorders.
The document, prepared with the assistance of the S2AY Rural Health Network, was submitted to the State of New York Department of Health pursuant to Public Health Law 2803-1. Public Health Law 2803-1 requires hospitals to submit a comprehensive Community Service Plan every three years and an Implementation Report on each of the alternate years.
