The New Vision Program allows area high school students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in healthcare careers.

Our deep community connection

Adirondack Health is a not-for-profit organization with a strong commitment to serving our region.

Our Community Benefit Program is designed to address specific health needs, with a focus on improving access to healthcare and increasing prevention through education. Our employees actively participate in Community Health Improvement initiatives designed to educate our stakesholders about important issues in healthcare and community health.

We offer a wide variety of free classes that focus on important issues such as cardiac disease, prenatal care, smoking cessation, CPR, diabetes and more. We host blood drives throughout the year and support flu clinics. Partnering with local high schools and colleges, we engage students interested in a healthcare career and offer them an opportunity to gain first-hand experience working in a hospital setting.

In addition, Adirondack Health hosts college students who gain first-hand clinical experience. We also partner with other area non-profits with similar missions, such as St. Joseph's Addiction and Rehabilitation Center, High Peaks Hospice, North Country Lifeflight, the U.S. Olympic Training Center and Mercy Care for the Adirondacks to support the well-being of our community.

Our patients and residents are often our friends, our family members, our neighbors, and it is this deep community connection that inspires us and drives our mission of excellent healthcare, close to home.
