Samaritan Medical Center’s 2016-2018 Community Service Plan fulfills the requirements of a federal statute under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requiring non-profit hospitals to develop a three-year action plan addressing community health needs as identified in a current community health assessment. Samaritan’s plan was developed in collaboration with the Fort Drum Regional Health Planning Organization, which conducted a regional health assessment in 2016. The Jefferson County Community Health Assessment is a fundamental part of Samaritan’s Community Service Plan.
