Staten Island Performing Provider System (SI PPS) is an alliance of clinical and social service providers focused on improving the quality of care and overall health for Staten Island's Medicaid and uninsured populations, which include more than 180,000 Staten Island residents.
SI PPS is one of 25 groups across the state working on the New York State Department of Health's Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program.
We are co-led by Staten Island University Hospital and Richmond University Medical Center. Our network of over 70 partners includes skilled nursing facilities, behavioral health providers, home health care agencies and a wide range of community-based clinical facilities, treatment centers, social service and community organizations, primary care physicians and medical practices across the island.
Our specific goals are:
- Improved access to high quality, culturally sensitive care
