About Us

Benefits to Our Community

First among all of our goals is to focus on a high quality and compassionate patient care experience.  By joining Partners HealthCare and creating closer ties with Brigham and Women’s Hospital, we can do just that through:

  • Increasing the availability of primary and preventive care on the South Shore
    • Recruiting and retaining more primary care physicians to the community, adding up to 27 additional primary care physicians to the region
    • Focusing on team-based care, emphasizing care coordination and communication to transform primary care to a more patient-focused model (also known as Patient Centered Medical Homes or PCMH)
    • Investing resources in prevention and wellness, as well as chronic disease management
  • Expanding access to specialized health care services in a local hospital setting
    • Expand and build upon the local availability of essential specialty services at South Shore Hospital, with a focus on specialty programs that can be provided successfully and efficiently in a community setting
    • Increase access to the specialists affiliated with  the Partners HealthCare system at South Shore Hospital
  • Investing in technology to support patient care
    • Ensure all clinicians—from RNs and case managers to Primary Care Physicians and specialists can access a patient’s medical record from anywhere in the system
  • Improving the health of the region
    • Use principles of population health management to identify new programs and services that will allow us to keep the entire South Shore community healthier. Services would include substance abuse prevention, tobacco cessation, and reductions in the incidence of overweight/obesity
    • Partner with patients to help them stay healthy and manage chronic conditions
  • Engaging physicians to build a system of care that meets patient needs
    • Create better collaboration between community-based and hospital/specialty physicians
    • Assure that patients receive care in the right setting, with seamless communications between physician’s office, community hospital and specialty hospital
  • Integrating services to increase efficiency and quality
    • Identify the regional programs (such as home health care) that can be provided jointly by South Shore Hospital and Partners HealthCare 
  • Maintaining local leadership and oversight
    • South Shore Hospital would maintain its own board of directors and fundraising autonomy
    • Members of South Shore Hospital's leadership and board would serve on Partners HealthCare’s executive team and the Partners and Brigham and Women’s health care board
