Community Commitment

Home » About Us » Community Commitment

As one of the largest healthcare providers in Western New York, Catholic Health is continually looking for ways to improve the health of the local community.

To help guide theses efforts, the health system conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment every three years to better understand the health issues faced by area residents. 

The completed assessment provides a framework for Catholic Health to prioritize community health needs and develop a plan to meet those needs.

As in prior years, the 2013 assessment focused on addressing health disparities in the region and improve access to care, especially for the poor and disadvantaged. Through its network of primary care centers and targeted community outreach programs, Catholic Health is serving many of the area’s most vulnerable residents.
