Noyes Memorial Hospital: Community Service Plan
In support of our Mission to “Support and promote the health of our communities through compassionate, quality care” and our Vision “To be our communities’ first choice and primary resource for medical and wellness promotion", Noyes Memorial Hospital is proud to issue the annual Community Service Plan to the New York State (NYS) Department of Health (DOH), and to report a 2012 Year 3 Update Plan which demonstrates our commitment to meeting the health care needs of the community.
The New York State Department of Health developed the Prevention Agenda with 10 priority areas that includes goals and measurable objective as a call to action to local health departments, health care providers, health plans, schools, employers, and businesses to collaborate at the community level to improve the health status of New Yorkers through increased emphasis on prevention. The Department asks hospitals to work together with their community partners, including local health departments, to address the Commissioner’s public health priorities identified in the Prevention Agenda toward the Healthiest State.
As part of a state-wide effort to emphasize local health planning, NMH collaborated with the Livingston County Health Department and other community partners to determine the public health priorities which form the basis of our plan. This report captures the primary benefits specific to Livingston County, though services also encompass four surrounding counties.
