December Stakeholders Meeting @ Virtual
Dec 11 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Join us on Friday, December 11th for Care Compass Network’s Quarterly Stakeholders Meeting to celebrate the endeavor embarked on over 5-years ago to transform the delivery of health care across the Southern Tier and improve the community health status. The meeting will be held virtually on Zoom from 11:00am – 12:30pm.

Partners from across the region will reflect on how a $213 million investment has impacted regional health status, their organization, and more importantly, partners will share stories of how community residents have been blessed. Partners will share what they look forward to in continuing to scale promising practices. Learn how Care Compass Network’s Strategic Plan is designed to support on-going sustainable health care transformation. There is a significant amount of work ahead of us, but the future is bright because of each organization and person therein who have been participating in the transformation of the care delivery model.

It is difficult to find ways to properly express our appreciation for the great work that has been accomplished. And it is even more difficult to express gratitude to community residents who have entrusted Care Compass Network and our partners with their health. In the past, partner appreciation has been expressed at the December celebration through sharing in a meal and reflection. As we will not be able to participate in person this year due to the pandemic, Care Compass Network will be expressing appreciation for the collective work of the partners by making a donation in honor of our partners and those they serve to a Food Bank serving our most vulnerable.

We welcome you to invite colleagues, your leadership team, or anyone else you think would like to attend this event as we acknowledge the triumphant moments of success which have arisen out of the opportunity presented by challenging transformation and the strong partnerships created through our DSRIP learnings.
