Proposed Merger with Partners HealthCare

South Shore Hospital merger with Partners HealthCare
designed to further improve care for South Shore residents

Almost two years ago, South Shore Hospital’s leadership and its volunteer, community based Board of Directors began exploring ways to assure that South Shore residents would continue to have access to outstanding care in a local setting.  A merger between South Shore Hospital and Partners HealthCare was determined to be the best way to achieve that goal and for the past year we have been moving plans forward to turn this vision into a reality.

South Shore Hospital Merger with Partners HealthCare

 Messages of Support From Our Community

We are as confident today as the day we announced our plans that this merger will help our hospital better care for the South Shore community.  South Shore Hospital and Partners HealthCare share a vision to improve the coordination and accessibility of care, as well as to help slow the growth of costs through more coordinated care with a focus on the health of the community as a whole.  

As a not-for-profit, community based hospital, South Shore Hospital has a simple mission:  to promote good health through healing, caring and comforting.  Our doctors, clinicians and colleagues do an outstanding job every day in meeting this mission—but health care is changing.  It is critical that the community has access to quality primary care physicians, preventive health services, emergency care and highly specialized care for when an unimaginable health care crisis strikes you and your family.

To succeed in serving our patients and our community, South Shore Hospital can’t achieve these aims on its own.  It takes an integrated health network—the type of system that we envision creating for our community, as a member of Partners. Partners HealthCare, which, like South Shore Hospital, provides high quality care, is a national leader in Population Health Management with considerable expertise and experience. Being part of a larger network will far more effectively allow us to care for our community.  To that end, we have proposed this merger with Partners HealthCare. 

Goals of the Merger:

  • Advance South Shore Hospital’s ability to fulfill our mission and provide quality care to our community
  • Enhance the patient care experience
  • Expand access to the services local residents can receive in a community setting
  • Support our physicians in their efforts to rethink patient care in a way that addresses the needs of the whole person
  • Create an integrated network that assures that patients can receive care seamlessly from different clinicians depending on their needs
  • Slow the growth of health care costs by providing care in lower cost settings, focus on Population Health Management and limiting unnecessary hospitalizations
  • Maintain the principles of a not-for-profit hospital and the benefits of community-based control of South Shore Hospital
