Community Service Plan
In compliance with the New York State Department of Health, St. Barnabas Hospital is actively developing a Community Service Plan 3-year plan of action to assess and improve health care in our community. Starting in early 2009, the hospital reached out to community organizations and created an active Community Service Plan Workgroup. The 43-member group meets monthly to address collaboratively the health concerns of the community. Two major health issues being addressed are access to quality health care and smoking cessation.
The Workgroup relies heavily upon the District Public Health Office for direction and technical assistance in gathering and reviewing the data.
We have made it our mission to provide information, resources and support to our population in order to make the community the healthiest it can be. Our goal is to improve the health and well-being of people living and working in the Bronx.
