About Us

How Did We Get Here?

Our Board of Directors conducted a detailed, thoughtful assessment to identify the right potential partner for our hospital, our employees and our community.  We considered the following key aspects when thinking about potential affiliations:

  • Compatibility with our mission
  • Resources to invest in the health care infrastructure on the South Shore
  • Willingness to include strong physician input in designing health care systems that would better care for our local residents
  • Capacity to help slow the growth of costs through more coordinated care and a focus on population health
  • Commitment to continued local input in hospital operations and future growth

In reviewing possible partnerships, we were fortunate that South Shore Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have worked together since 2004 to benefit the people of Southeastern Massachusetts.  Examples include the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center in clinical affiliation with South Shore Hospital, a comprehensive Breast Care Center, a reproductive medicine program, and the local availability of cardiovascular careneurology, urogynecology, general surgery, thoracic surgery, plastic surgery, and vascular surgery. 

That working relationship, along with detailed conversations with Brigham and Women’s Hospital parent company—Partners HealthCare – gave us confidence that becoming part of the Partners system and deepening our clinical relationship with Brigham and Women’s at all levels would substantially and sustainably benefit the people of our region.

Our proposed merger requires approvals from state and federal agencies. We have shared our merger plans with them. In the meantime, we continue to focus on taking care of our community and advancing our health care services for the residents of the South Shore.
