The South Shore Physician Hospital Organization (SSPHO) provides managed care health insurance contracting and administrative services for its two organizational members:  South Shore Hospital (SSH) and the Physicians Organization of the South Shore (POSS).

We are dedicated to the preservation of quality and value in patient care by enhancing our community’s access to primary and specialty care services.  We also help our member providers manage total medical expense to improve the affordability of high-quality health care.  Our organization achieves these goals by encouraging our member providers to work together in pursuit of the Triple Aim: better care for individuals, better health for populations, and lower cost per capita.

We are consistently recognized by Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Harvard Pilgrim Health Plan, and Tufts Associated Health Plan for innovation and clinical achievement in the delivery of health care services.

Physicians who are interested in learning more about the SSPHO are encouraged to contact us.

Patients who would like to contact one of our member physicians are invited to consult our SSPHO Member Physician Directory.
