Mission of the Greene County Rural Health Network:

To advance the health and well-being of Greene County residents by promoting programs that enhance healthy lifestyles, improve behavioral health and increase access to and delivery of quality healthcare.

After obtaining a small grant from the NYS Office of Rural Health to begin formation, our non-profit organization was incorporated in 1996. Since then, the Greene County Rural Health Network has enriched Greene County’s health care community by distributing nearly $5.5 million in grants to projects that further its mission to improve the health of Greene County residents.
