Member Spotlight – Ellenville Regional Hospital promotes community wellness
Poor diet and sedentary lifestyle are leading contributors to mortality and increased risk for most chronic diseases. Hospitals can expand and strengthen their impact on the community’s health and wellness by providing education on lifestyle and dietary changes. In 2018, Ellenville Regional Rural Health Network initiated the Rural Health Network Wellness Program, a free community wellness program to improve population health. Established in 2017, ERRHN is a partnership between Ellenville Regional Hospital, the Ulster County Department of Health and the Institute for Family Health.
