The Seneca County Health Department completes a Community Health Assessment (CHA) in conjunction with Geneva General Hospital.  Local health department are directed to work collaboratively to develop community health improvement plans with a local hospital by the New York State Department of Health. 

Seneca County is one of the few counties in the state that does not have a hospital located in the county; therefore the Seneca County Health Department collaborates with representatives from Finger Lakes Health at Geneva General Hospital. 

Our most recent CHA process was completed in 2018 and resulted in the current Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).  The CHIP collaborative team known as the Seneca Health Solutions Team Steuben includes representatives from Seneca County Health Department, Geneva General Hospital, the S2AY Rural Health Network, STEPS, Cornell Cooperative Extension, Finger Lakes WIC, Seneca County Mental Health and Addictions, the Seneca County Substance Abuse Coalition and Common Ground Health.

The priorities of the 2019-2021 Seneca County CHIP are as follows;

  1. Reduce obesity in children and adults
  2. Reduce heart disease and hypertension
  3. Prevent Substance Abuse and Promote Mental Health
