Campus specific implementation plan updates are reported on an annual basis.

Bethlehem

2013 -2014

In Year 1 (2013-2014) of our implementation plan we aligned our existing community health programs towards the goals outlined. We strengthened partnerships for already existing community and network health initiatives, and began making inroads for new programming to be undertaken during this cycle in order to adhere to our plan. The four priority health areas identified were Mental Health, Adolescent Health, Elder Health and Health Equity/Disparities. In addition, high rates of chronic disease and poor nutrition and physical activity levels were clearly identified in the community needs assessment. Community members commented on the importance of weaving wellness issues into each of the four identified priority areas. Therefore, hospital representatives felt strongly that general wellness goals and objectives should also be included in the overall network and specific entity strategic plans.

St. Luke’s Allentown adopted a Community Health Needs Assessment and Implementation Plan in May 2013 (Year 1: 2013-2014) to meet the requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The Implementation Plan focuses on the following priority areas:

  • Improve Access to Care
  • Address Social Determinants of Health and Health Disparities
  • Promote Healthy Lifestyles and Behaviors
  • Enhance the Collection and Dissemination of Health Information

Programs and collaborative efforts focus on these four priority areas with priority 4 – Enhance the Collection and Dissemination of Health Information – also being addressed in priorities 1 through 3. St. Luke’s Allentown Adopt a School Model works in collaboration with the Allentown School District (ASD) addressing all four priority areas.
