Cortlandt Manor, NY - (July 11, 2013) – What are the most pressing health needs in your community? Hudson Valley Hospital Center wants to know.

As part of a state and federal push to improve health care, Hudson Valley Hospital Center is asking people in the community to complete a questionnaire to help assess what healthcare services are most needed.  To fill out the questionnaire click here.The survey is anonymous and does not require participants to give their names or contact information.

“Hudson Valley Hospital Center has been meeting the health needs of our community for nearly 125 years,’’ said Hudson Valley Hospital Center President John Federspiel. “We want to make sure that we continue to meet those needs. We ask that the public devote five minutes to take this brief survey to help us understand how we can best serve them.’’

The questionnaire is being done in partnership with the Westchester County Department of Health and hospitals countywide as part of an initiative called Working Together Toward a Healthier Westchester. The goal is to meet new state and federal healthcare standards that require hospitals to come up with cooperative health improvement plans with input from the community. A half-day health planning summit will be held on August 15 with agencies throughout Westchester to discuss health planning as part of this initiative.
