The Massachusetts Attorney General's Office (AGO) filed a consent judgment in Suffolk Superior Court on June 24, 2014 that would make it possible for South Shore Hospital to become a member of Partners HealthCare. The Superior Court Judge subsequently ruled that the AGO must accept public comments about the consent judgment before the Court would act on it.

Hundreds of community members, elected officials, business leaders, patients, colleagues, and supporters submitted comments in support of our proposed merger and the consent judgment.  The comments were accompanied by a letter from Richard Aubut, president and chief executive officer of South Shore Health and Educational Corporation.

The following members of our community have written to the Health Policy Commission (HPC) in support of our merger.














Below are letters in favor of the merger and select testimonials extracted from the official transcript of the below hearing.

"My family and friends live in the South Shore and I want them to be assured of a high quality, healthy future."
"I believe the merger will result in reduced health care costs for residents of the south shore of Boston along with an increase in the quality and availability of world class health care. Having been a patient of South Shore Hospital during the past year, fighting cancer, I appreciate the ability to receive this first class health care as close to home as possible. It was helpful to me as the patient along with my family and friends who were caring for me during my illness."
"I have had very good experience with the ALL the hospitals considered in the partnership. I feel South Shore Hospital would greatly benefit with this merger."
"Many of the doctors at SSH are currently connected with Partners. In the past I have had to travel to BWH for different procedures. It would be very convenient for the elderly to have those services available on the South Shore."
"Residents of the South Shore deserve local access to Partners HealthCare resources."
"Healthcare accessability is very important to our patient population. The merger with Partners will only benefit patients and staff members, by creating a larger, more comprehensive team."
