The mission of the Finger Lakes Rural Health Network (FLRHN) is to positively impact the health of the communities we serve, with a particular focus on assisting these communities to achieve the goals of the NYS DOH Prevention Agenda, State Health Innovation Plan, & Population Health Improvement Program.
The Finger Lakes Rural Health Network grant, funded by the NYS Office of Rural Health, provides us the opportunity to:
- Improve patient access to and engagement in chronic disease programming by transitioning promotion, enrollment, and programming to a web-based platform
- Identify and fill gaps in programming – particularly in mental health, substance abuse, and social determinants of health such as food, housing, and transportation
- Raise awareness of cancer risk factors, screening options, and provide access to supportive resources
A variety of local health organizations came together to form the Finger Lakes Rural Health Network (FLRHN).
Our service map spans just over 7,00 square miles and seven hospital systems.
