Community Health

Burdett Birth Center is committed to improving the health and well-being of our community. As such, we participate in a community partnerships aimed at assessing the current health status of our community and identifying opportunities to make a difference in the health of our citizens with particular attention to those who are poor and vulnerable.

As we have done for many years, we continue to work with the Healthy Capital District Initiative, an organization dedicated to improving the health of the residents of Albany, Rensselaer and Schenectady Counties. Our partners in this endeavor are the local county health departments, other health care providers, insurers and community members.

In June 2016, this group completed the 2016-18 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), which represents a current profile of health status, wellness, health delivery and public-sourced opinions about health in the Capital Region and identifies significant health issues in the communities we serve.

This assessment contains both quantitative and qualitative data sources, along with significant stakeholder and public input. This information was used in the development of a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) that will guide Burdett Birth Center programming and activities for the next three years. It will also help us track our progress.

The CHNA and CHIP together form Burdett Birth Center’s Community Service Plan. This document should not be viewed as a static document but as a dynamic roadmap that will improve the health and well-being of residents in the Capital Region.
