Adirondack Rural Health Network (ARHN) Executive Summary
The Adirondack Rural Health Network (ARHN) is proud to present you with this report of a comprehensive collection and analysis of data regarding health issues and needs in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Warren, and Washington counties in New York State.
This report is the result of information gathered from a variety of sources and perspectives to provide valuable insight into the region’s needs. The well-being of a community is reflected through a wide array of factors including access to medical services, individual behaviors, socio-demographic characteristics, and the environment in which one lives. The results enable us to guide strategic planning throughout the Adirondack region, highlight topics for increased public awareness and education, identify areas for training, and support the New York State Department of Health’s Prevention Agenda to aid in developing regional health planning activities and resources.
ARHN hopes the information in this Executive Summary will provide insight into the needs of the region and help communities identify their strengths, as well as areas where additional resources are needed.
The Adirondack Rural Health Network (ARHN) is a community partnership of public, private, and non-profit organizations in Upstate New York. The mission of the ARHN is to undertake community health activities that are best accomplished through collective efforts of member organizations focusing on health problems of greatest concern, addressing the health needs of under-served populations, and adding value to the regional health care system. Adirondack Rural Health Network creates a collaborative process for developing strategies and for implementing, monitoring, and evaluating the regional health care system.
The Adirondack Rural Health Network was established in 1992 through a grant award between the Upper Hudson Primary Care Consortium and the New York State Department of Health. Over the years, ARHN has achieved significant success as a catalyst for regional community health service development with special focus on primary care, behavioral health, oral health, and emergency medical / pre-hospital services. It links community health centers, hospitals, local public health units, community mental health programs, emergency medical services, and other health-related service agencies by providing the forum to address regional rural health care delivery problems.
