As 2023 concludes, looking back on the achievements and the work ahead helps us frame our goals for 2024. The PPS continues to direct financial and strategic support for its partner organizations, implement population health and work force initiatives that focus on health equity in our community. Nearly 4 years post the DSRIP waiver, the PPS partner organizations continue to distinguish themselves in implementing innovative programs in the most challenging health domains like maternal health, substance use disorder, hypertension, diabetes, asthma, social determinants of health, Veteran and active duty programs, children’s health and prevention services.
The highlights for the PPS and its partners this year made a difference in many people’s lives. They include:
For 2024, the long awaited 1115 Waiver remains a priority, but the PPS has embarked on numerous initiatives that will also shape the direction of population health on Staten Island.
Many thanks to our friends and supporters who have worked with us to access resources, connect with new partners and expand the orbit of our work. There is much to be thankful for in 2023 and we are looking forward to a highly productive 2024 with the help of all our partners and supporters. This is especially so for our parent organization, Northwell Health. When many PPS were closed down in 2020, their commitment, along with the SIUH Executive Director, Brahim Ardolic, to keep the PPS efforts going in this community speaks louder than words.
