Adirondack Health charts strategy for healthier communities



Every three years Adirondack Health develops a new strategic plan with a clearly defined set of goals to continually improve the organization and services we provide to the community. The Adirondack Health Board of Trustees and Executive Leadership team worked with members of the community, physicians, and staff to develop the initiatives and goals in the strategic plan. 

This newest plan identifies three key areas, or pillars, to achieve a stronger health system and continue providing exceptional care to our patients and long-term care residents. Having a plan is all the more important in today’s rapidly evolving healthcare environment.

Patient Experience
By recruiting the best and brightest physicians and staff, Adirondack Health will continue a tradition of surpassing state and national patient safety and satisfaction benchmarks.

Community Health Network
Adirondack Health will explore a broad range of potential collaborations to provide a more comprehensive, team-based approach to patient care and community health. We can achieve healthier communities in our region through increased use of primary care, establishing new clinics in existing community-based retail space for convenient access, empowering patient advocates, and improving our ability to share health information digitally.

Value of Healthcare
Adirondack Health will reach out to strategic partners to re-purpose existing healthcare facilities, will invest in facility and building renovations, and adopt new methods of care to provide the best value to patients and residents. This includes a partnership to enhance long term care services at Uihlein Living Center, a proposed medical campus in Lake Placid, and a renovated and expanded surgical services department to meet an increasing need for outpatient services.
