16 16 Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency The triangle represents our agency’s role as a fulcrum—the point on which a lever pivots—boosting the community’s health by leveraging the strengths of all stakeholders. The fulcrum is also a point of equilibrium, reflecting our ability to balance the needs of consumers, providers and payers on complex health matters. The inner triangle also evokes the Greek letter delta—used in medical and mathematical contexts to represent change—with a forward lean as we work with our community to achieve positive changes in health care. Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. —Archimedes 1150 University Avenue Rochester, New York 14607-1647 585.461.3520
