We Need Your Input

As part of New York State's Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program, The Rockland County Department of Social Services is working with Westchester Medical Center, Montefiore Medical Center, Refuah Community Health Collaborative (RCHC) and HealthAlliance in the Hudson Valley to conduct a community needs assessment. As part of that effort, we have just released a new DSRIP online health survey for residents of the Hudson Valley. The survey will help identify community health care needs and help each Hudson Valley Performing Provider Systems (PPS) develop the right services to meet the needs of Hudson Valley communities.

We are asking for your help. This request includes all members of the community. Please complete the survey at the following website:

Thank you in advance for your participation in this project to bring the necessary services to all.
