The Health Promotion Center of Glens Falls Hospital works to improve the health and well-being of the people and communities in our region. Our present work focuses on strategies to make it easier for people to eat well, be tobacco- free, be physically active, and obtain preventive care.
This work is currently supported through numerous grant-funded initiatives housed within the Health Promotion Center, including Healthy Schools New York, Living Tobacco-Free and Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work & Play.
Through these programs, Health Promotion Center staff work collaboratively with school districts, businesses, communities, hospitals, and healthcare provider organizations to support healthy lifestyles for our patients and community members. Specific strategies focus on policy, systems, and environmental changes that reduce risks for chronic disease and improve quality of life for both children and adults.
Glens Falls Hospital has worked to create healthier communities since its founding in 1897. As part of this ideal, numerous community health planning efforts are coordinated by the Health Promotion Center to communicate community benefit programs to the public:
- The Community Service Plan for 2013 - 2015 is required by the NYS Department of Health. A description of our progress on the plan can be found in the Community Service Plan Update for 2015.
- The Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and Implementation Strategy address the requirements set forth by the Internal Revenue Service through the Affordable Care Act, as well as the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. An appendix to the CHNA is also available.
Glens Falls Hospital partners with AHI to conduct regional planning and community health planning activities. HealthyADK is a regional population health and socio-economic indicators resource portal maintained by AHI in collaboration with community organizations and agencies. This site provides easy access to up-to-date community health data for numerous sectors including community members, business, community development, government, educators, community-based organizations, and health care professionals.
