2016-2017

The mission of St. Luke's University Health Network (SLUHN) is an unwavering commitment to excellence as we care for the sick and injured; educate physicians, nurses and other health care providers; and improve access to care in the communities we serve, regardless of a patient's ability to pay for health care. Moreover, the Community Health and Preventive Medicine (CHPM) Department of SLUHN continues to strive to achieve its mission of partnering with the community to increase health awareness, improve the health status of the community and encourage appropriate access to health services.

Goals

As we address each health priority from our 2016 CHNA, we use a three-prong approach ensuring that all priorities are advanced using the three buckets related to Prevention and Wellness, Care Transformation, and Research and Partnerships. This ensures a more comprehensive approach where traditional community health programming/initiatives are intertwined with clinical service lines, while research and partnerships are further developed and fostered.
