Schenectady County Partners on Capital Region Community Health Needs Assessment

Every 3 years, Ellis Hospital, Sunnyview Rehab Hospital and Schenectady County Public Health Services go through a process to write a Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Plan. This is done by reviewing community level health data with our stakeholders, discussing the data at our Schenectady Coalition for a Healthy Community, and by posting a survey to request input from the broader community. As a result of all of this information combined, we determine priority areas that the Schenectady County Community would like to work on for the Community Health Improvement Plan cycle. 

For 2019-2021, the following 2 priority areas were chosen: 

1. Prevent Chronic Diseases with the focus area of Tobacco Prevention 

2. Promote Well-Being and Prevent Mental and Substance Use Disorders with the focus area of Mental and Substance Use Disorders Prevention
