NYULH currently operates over30 ambulatory care facilities and fiveinpatient facilities: Tisch Hospital Kimmel Pavilion NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYULangone NYU Langone Hospital–BrooklynEvery three years, all non-profit hospitals are required to create aCommunity Service Plan – a plan to offer programs that meet thecommunity’s top health needs. A Community Service Plan beginswith a community health needs assessment. This is a review ofcommunity data and information from community membersabout their health needs and priorities. This assessment shows uswhat health concerns the communities are experiencing and howwe can help address these concerns.In addition, Sunset Park Health Council,Inc., an affiliate of NYULH, is a FederallyQualified Health Center network, whichincludes nine primary care health centersin Brooklyn and over 40 school- andshelter-based extension clinics, under thename Family Health Centers at NYULangone.Completeassessment ofcommunities’ healthImplement programsfor the mostimportant healthconcernsIdentify mostimportant healthprioritiesReview to decide ifthe programs madea differenceNYULH is the principal teaching hospitalfor NYUSoM, which has trained thousandsof physicians and scientists since itsfounding in 1841.

Data ReviewedPublic Participation & PartnersWe reviewed data to understand who is living in ourpartnering communities including age, sex, race andethnicity, education levels, countries of origin andincome levels.We involved community residents and leadersthrough surveys, interviews, focus groups, andcommunity workshops.We looked at data from the New York CityDepartment of Health and Mental Hygiene’s mostrecent Community Health Survey to determine therange of chronic diseases and risk factors in eachcommunity.We also examined hospital admission andemergency department data to understand whouses these services and what are the healthconditions for which they seek care. And, inresponse to community input, we looked at dataabout the housing environment, including issues ofhousing instability and quality.Our Community Service Plan Coordinating Council,which includes leaders from NYULH and from ourcommunity partners, meets every three months tocoordinate programs and to make sure that they areon track. NYU Langone Hospital–Brooklyn’sadvisory structure includes the Sunset Park HealthCouncil as the community governing board; advisorygroups from different cultures; and program-specificadvisory groups, including the Teen Health Council.We also spoke to many public health experts in theCity and State Health and Mental HealthDepartments, the City Department of Education,NYCHA, the Department of Housing Preservationand Development, and other organizations,including community leaders, resident associations,faith- and community-based organizations,advocacy groups, and members of CommunityBoards. A list of people and organizations we spoketo and our partners is included in the full Plan.2DC 12/19/2019

Our Partnering Communities:Lower East Side and Chinatown, Manhattan & Sunset Park and Red Hook, BrooklynNYU Langone Hospitals serves communities of diverse people with a variety of health concerns. As with ourprevious Community Service Plans, the 2019-2021 Plan focuses on the Lower East Side and Chinatown inManhattan, and Sunset Park in Brooklyn. We also completed a needs and assets assessment in Red Hook,Brooklyn and are beginning to implement Community Service Plan programs there as well.These communities were selected based on the need for services and their general proximity to NYU LangoneHospitals. Although these communities are not geographically contiguous, they share important similarities,including the diversity of their populations, an infrastructure of strong community-based organizations, andpockets of poverty amidst gentrification.Community residents in our partnering neighborhoods share similar health concerns. Reducing tobacco use,preventing and addressing obesity and cardiovascular disease, and supporting families through earlychildhood and teen programs continue to be top priorities. In addition, our CHNA revealed a growing concernabout the intersection of health and social and economic needs, particularly housing, across all communitiesand partners. These priorities are described briefly below, followed by a brief description of our evidencebased programs, which respond to these community needs and address health disparities.3DC 12/19/2019

Our PrioritiesPREVENTING CHRONIC DISEASEPROMOTING HEALTHY WOMEN,INFANTS, AND CHILDRENBy Reducing Tobacco UseSmoking rates in New York City have dropped. Only about13% of New Yorkers now smoke. But 16% of low-incomeNew Yorkers smoke. The smoking rate for Asian men in NewYork City is even higher (over 23%) and they are more likelyto be heavy smokers than other racial and ethnic groups.The rates of smoking in the Lower East Side/Chinatown andSunset Park, communities with large low-income Asianpopulations, remain higher than the rest of the City.By Addressing the Intersection of Health andHousingIn recent years, there has been a growing recognition of theintersection of housing and health. Many studies havedocumented the link between housing instability and poorhealth and increased need for health care services.Homelessness increases risk for chronic and infectiousconditions and mental health issues. Severe rent burden,overcrowding and eviction can lead to stress, depression,anxiety and diminished access to care and medications.Structural issues and mold and pests can cause respiratoryproblems and falls and other injuries. Housing instabilityand quality are priority social determinants of health in all ofour partner communities.Mothers and children who are exposed tostress are at risk for many health problems.In New York State, mother and child healthhas not improved over the past decade and,by some measures, has gotten worse.Poverty puts mothers at risk for depressionand problems during pregnancy and putschildren at risk for poor health anddevelopmental problems. Many lowincome families in the Lower East Side/Chinatown, Sunset Park, and Red Hook aresubject to these stresses and at risk for poorhealth outcomes.By Preventing and Addressing ObesityChildhood obesity continues to be epidemic throughoutNew York City. It is more common in low-income urbancommunities where neighborhood resources – like healthyfood and safe places for physical activity – may not beavailable. Although the rates of obesity in the Lower EastSide/Chinatown and Sunset Park are no higher than the NewYork City average (25% as of 2014), low-income children inboth communities are vulnerable, and preventing andaddressing obesity is a high priority for community residentsand leaders. For the large immigrant populations in SunsetPark and the Lower East Side/Chinatown, addressing healthyeating and physical activity in early childhood can preventlater generations from developing obesity and diabetes.4DC 12/19/2019

Implementing Programs That WorkPREVENTING CHRONIC DISEASETobacco Free Community helps smokers get accessto treatments and counseling to help them quit andworks to reduce children’s exposure to secondhandsmoke. It is being offered in the Lower EastSide/Chinatown and in Sunset Park in partnershipwith Asian Americans for Equality and the AsianSmokers’ Quitline. The navigator program isreaching out to NYCHA residents, who may bestruggling to comply with the smoke-free housingrequirements. In addition, the Charles B. WangCommunity Health Center is spearheading a Citywide coalition to raise awareness and to expand thenavigator program across the City, with a focus onimmigrant populations, and their Teen ResourceCenter is developing an education and outreachprogram about tobacco and e-cigarettes.The Health Housing Project is a program inpartnership with Henry Street Settlement, NYCHAand Wavecrest Management in which CommunityHealth Workers helped residents in two buildings onthe Lower East Side by connecting them to neededhealth and social services.Goals: Support healthier eatingIncrease physical activityDecrease smokingImprove access to health care and socialservicesImprove management of health problemsDecrease need for emergency care andhospitalizationsGoals: Increase knowledge about services andmedications to help smokers quitIncrease use of services and resourcesIncrease support for smoke-free housingDecrease rates of smokingThe program is being continued by WavecrestManagement in partnership with Henry StreetSettlement.5DC 12/19/2019
