About the ACN

At NewYork-Presbyterian, we have a long-standing commitment to understanding the healthcare needs of the communities we serve and adapting our programs to meet those needs. Our ultimate goal is to reduce and ultimately erase, health disparities by linking our neighbors with the world’s best healthcare services.
We leverage hospital and community resources to reduce health disparities through innovative population health initiatives, care provider training, scholarship, and research. These initiatives are collaboratively developed, implemented, evaluated, and sustained. By combining our skills and resources with the energy, immense talents, and resources of our community partners, we achieve these goals. These partnerships support initiatives that

  • empower individuals and families to promote health and wellness;
  • better navigate local systems of care and local resources;
  • improve school readiness and academic achievement; and
  • ultimately, enhance the quality of life.
