New York City, our longest standing network of providers and first to be publicly funded, participates in the Northeast regional community of practice alongside our newest Northeast network, RIServes, and our Upstate New York network, NYServes – Upstate.
Together this regional community of practice represents a diverse array of perspectives from rural to big city. Coordination centers in this region are equally diverse. In New York City Northwell Health, the nation’s 14th largest healthcare system runs the coordination center, and in Upstate New York the home of the coordination center is a small local nonprofit with 40+ years serving veterans locally. Rhode Island is led by the Rhode Island Office of Veterans Affairs, a brand-new within Rhode Island state government dedicated to serving the Ocean State’s veterans and military families.
Activities bring together providers across three networks to learn from the diverse perspectives and the challenges and best practices that emerge in each of these communities. Together these networks of providers work to improve upon their service delivery to veterans, service members and their families.
