About Us

Weymouth Benefits

South Shore Hospital is proud to call Weymouth home since 1922.  Beyond our core mission of providing healing, caring, and comforting to the patients and families who come to us in times of need, we are committed to also serve our community as a good corporate citizen, responsive employer, and considerate neighbor.  Among the ways that South Shore Hospital seeks to enhance the quality of life and financial well-being of Weymouth include the following:

Promoting WellnessMobile Simulation Lab

  • Provide emergency skills training to Weymouth first responders through our Mobile Simulation Lab
  • Offer free or low-cost wellness programs such as South Shore Moves!, health screenings, education programs, and support groups.
  • Supplying Police and Fire vehicles with the opioid overdose medication, Narcan, and tourniquets for immediate trauma response.
  • Paramedic coverage at community events such as the Legion Field opening ceremony and road races.
  • Volunteer medical direction of the Weymouth Department of Pubic Health
  • Support of community initiatives such as “Healthy Wey” and “Mass in Motion.”
  • Planning and support of collaborative emergency preparedness exercises with community public safety departments

Corporate Citizenship

  • South Shore Hospital makes a voluntary annual Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) that currently totals $700,000 per year.  This payment is calculated using a formulaSchoolCB.jpg agreed to with the Town in 1993 which ensures that as the Hospital grows, the financial benefits to Weymouth correspondingly grow.  This voluntary payment has grown 400% since 2008 and qualifies South Shore Hospital as the largest “taxpayer” in Weymouth – despite being a tax-exempt charitable organization.
  • We also participate in a number of important organizations that contribute to the quality of life in town such as the Rotary Club, the Columbian Square Business Association, and the Weymouth Chamber of Commerce.
  • As an organization and as individuals, we volunteer for and support entities such as the Food Pantry, holiday toy drives, youth sports, and the schools.
  • Our facilities support public safety communication equipment and we provide improvements to enhance traffic safety at several busy intersections in town.
  • We also provided approximately $45 million in 2015 to support unreimbursed medical services for the region – much of which benefits people who live in Weymouth.

Economic Vitality

  • South Shore Hospital employs approximately 800 Weymouth residents, supporting nearly $45 million in salaries to people who live in this community.
  • We utilize more than 100 Weymouth businesses, providing millions of dollars in additional economic activity throughout the town.
  • South Shore Hospital serves as the signature entity in a growing healthcare sector that led the Patriot Ledger to describe Weymouth as “Medical Mecca.”  SSH supports or attracted related businesses to locations up and down Main Street, throughout Libbey Industrial Park, and many nearby locations that drive economic vitality in Weymouth.  We are eager to work with community leaders to continue serving as a magnet to attract all types of companies to Weymouth.SSMgroup.jpg
