HRHCare is proud to have received a grant from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to launch the Hudson Community Health Alliance, a coalition including the Rockland and Westchester County Departments of Health to help prevent and control chronic health issues such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. The funding will allow for the implementation of strategies that promote health, support and reinforce healthful behaviors, encourage lifestyle change program participation, and link community programs to clinical services. The funds were distributed to HRHCare as part of a $7 million statewide grant administered through New York State Department of Health’s Local Initiatives for Multi Sector Public Health Action, or Local IMPACT, program. The selection of HRHCare for this grant is yet another testament to the unparalleled services it offers its patients in Rockland and Westchester Counties.

“HRHCare is honored to accept this grant, signifying our commitment to ensuring that primary care services are well organized to address the prevention and treatment of chronic health issues. We look forward to using the funds to promote healthy living along with our partners in Rockland and Westchester Counties through the Hudson Community Health Alliance,” said Anne Kauffman Nolon, MPH, President and CEO of HRHCare. “Community health plays a vital role in protecting our most vulnerable populations, and HRHCare is grateful to be leading this critically important program.”

HRHCare operates five facilities in Rockland and Westchester Counties, where residents suffer from some of the highest rates of chronic disease in the state. Governor Cuomo’s office has identified diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer and asthma as leading causes of death, disability and rising health care costs in New York.

HRHCare serves as the lead agency for Hudson Community Health Alliance which is a collaboration between local partners to prevent obesity, prevent and control diabetes, heart disease and stroke, with a focus on improving the well-being of those working and residing in Westchester and Rockland Counties.  Grant funding is provided to the Alliance by the NYSDOH through Grant Number NU58DP005496 from the CDC National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.
