Social Care Network Virtual Celebration

It has been an extraordinary Spring for Hudson Valley Care Coalition! Last month, we shared news

about our coming together with Coordinated Behavioral Health Services (CBHS) and

recently we shared details of our work with Unite Us, the national leader in cross-sector

collaboration information technology to create connected communities to improve people’s health

and well-being.

This new evolution for the Hudson Valley Care Coalition brings powerful partnerships together to

overcome challenges within our geographically and demographically diverse region to address health

disparities. We call it “Ecosystem” modeled after the success of the Camden Coalition. We see our

community-based ecosystem as the dawn of a new day for the people of the Hudson Valley.

We also celebrate the Hudson Valley’s work to co-design a Social Care Network proposal

submitted to the New York State Department of Health. Our work is historic, and we are optimistic

about the results. Join us on May 1st from 10-11 am for a virtual celebration for

successfully submitting our application! Dutchess County Executive Sue Serino, Orange County

DSS/MH Commissioner Miller, Sullivan County DSS Commissioner Liddle and CEO of United Way of

Rockland, Stephen Papas, will join us in our celebration!

The Hudson Valley Care Coalition exists to Create Communities of Health and Wellness for


We believe in a future where everyone in the Hudson Valley can find a path to health and wellness.

We work in partnership with County governments, grass-roots organizations, primary care providers,

hospitals, schools, social and behavioral health services, payers and others to ensure everyone finds

their path.

The Hudson Valley Care Coalition’s Social Care Network application by numbers:


Leadership from Health, Social Services and Behavioral Health departments in Dutchess,

Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester Counties helped to design

the Social Care Network advanced by HVCC. We recognize the important and unique role

County government plays in the wellness journey for their residents. In many ways,

counties are the pulse of the community.


The proposed Social Care Network is comprised of over 130 community-based

organizations from the Hudson Valley who are central to our purpose to create

communities of health and wellness for all.


The HVCC application for the Social Care Network demonstrates a commitment to deliver

impact on the social determinants of health by investing 50% of the available funds into

Community Based Organizations.


Creating health and wellness for all will take new approaches to connecting our valued health

care partners in local hospital systems and primary care practices with our network of

community-based organizations. Urban and rural healthcare leaders alike, helped to design

our Social Care Network. We have the support of Montefiore Health System, Westchester

Medical Center, Ellenville Regional Hospital, Garnett Health, St. Vincent’s Hospital, St.

Joesph’s Medical Center, Crystal Run Healthcare, Westchester Community Health Center,

Cornerstone Family Healthcare, Open Door Family Medical Center, and the Institute for

Family Health.

While we await a decision by the New York State Department of Health, know that we continue to

work towards a Hudson Valley where everyone can find a path to health and wellness.

It is not too late to join our movement! Please contact Amie Parikh at to learn

more about our work and talk through how your organization can join in.
