Community Benefits Program

UMass Memorial Health Care is committed to improving the health status of all those it serves and to addressing the health problems of the poor and other medically underserved populations. We aim to improve the health status of our communities by addressing some of the social, economic and political obstacles that prevent people from attaining optimal health.

Community Benefits Programs at UMass Memorial Hospitals

Our Community Benefits Program supports community health initiatives that address unmet health needs through partnerships with many local human service organizations. The Community Benefits Advisory Committee, for example, works collaboratively with UMass Memorial Health Care and makes specific recommendations for program activities, identifies needs, generates new ideas, plans and expands existing services, and provides overall program support.

Community benefits initiatives at UMass Memorial Health Care hospitals include:

  • UMass Memorial Medical Center - Mobile medical and dental services, healthy communities, literacy, youth development and violence prevention, children's wellness and protection, senior services, health services in low-income neighborhoods, mental health services for youth, and programs for the uninsured, underinsured, indigent and homeless
