The mission of the Rural Health Network of South Central New York, Inc. (RHNSCNY), is to promote and improve the health of rural communities and strengthen each community's capacity to respond to health needs by reducing barriers and improving access to and use of health and human services through advocacy, communication, and partnerships.
Our vision of success: RHNSCNY works toward optimal individual and community health and wellness, which are supported by:
- Individuals and families with adequate and affordable health insurance;
- Accessible, efficient, and collaborative health and human service delivery systems driven by best practice models;
- Reduction in health disparities for the most vulnerable populations;
- Strong community norms for healthy lifestyle choices and optimal physical and mental health.
Our vision of success is predicated on the strength of RHNSCNY, the commitment and participation of our stakeholders (including our board, staff, and community partners), and the availability of resources required to achieve desired results.
