Community Service PlanIn compliance with the New York State Department of Health, St. Barnabas Hospital has developed a Community Service Plan to assess and improve health care in our community. This plan has been approved by the hospital Board of Trustees and consists of:
- The hospital mission statement
- Definition and brief description of the community served
- Public participation information
- Selection of Public Health Priorities based on the State Department of Health’s Prevention Agenda thru a community health needs assessment
- Strategic implementation plan
The hospital along with community organizations, institutions and other stakeholders maintains an active Community Service Plan Workgroup. The membership group meets routinely to address collaboratively the health concerns of the community. We have made it our mission to provide information, resources, support and services to our residents 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. SBH has a 2013-2017 Community Service Plan which has been approved by the Hospital’s Board of Trustees and submitted to the State Department of Health. The top health priorities as designated by the NYS Department of Health’s “Agenda for a Healthier State” were the premise for informing the development of this community focused hospital plan.
