Hudson Headwaters Health Network
Sign in Here: Patient Portal

Our Mission: Our mission has remained the same throughout: to provide the best health care, and access to that care, for everyone in our communities.

On June 18, 2020, Hudson Headwaters announced a new initiative: Hudson Headwaters CARES (Culturally Appropriate Resources and Education Services): The Task Force for Health Equity. The task force reviews Hudson Headwaters’ messaging approach to care and employment to make sure the organization is inclusive of everyone in the communities that we serve, just as our mission states. This renewed commitment to building an inclusive health care network is crucial to expanding accessibility and improving quality, the cornerstones of our mission.

With the CARES task force leading the charge, Hudson Headwaters has engaged Tangible Development, the Capital Region’s premiere DEI firm, to conduct a Network-wide DEI audit that is currently underway.
