Crouse Health works with the Onondaga County Health Department, Syracuse hospitals and other health and public health organizations to identify our community’s most challenging health priorities.
After a year-long process, two priorities were chosen from the priorities detailed in the New York State Prevention Agenda, 2013 – 2018. The Prevention Agenda is New York’s health improvement plan and is the framework for local and regional health improvement implementation plans.
The documents listed below provide background and detail about Crouse Health’s and Onondaga County’s chosen health priorities and plans for improving community health.
