Building Healthy Communities                      

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 Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work & Play, Healthy Schools New York, and the Tobacco Cessation Center.

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 effort, numerous documents have been produced to communicate these efforts.
