Community Benefits

Committed to Improving the Health of our Community!

Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton's community benefits mission is to provide free or low-cost programs that address unmet health and wellness needs of racially, ethnically and linguistically diverse communities of Milton, Randolph, Quincy, Dorchester, Hyde Park, Braintree and Canton, in a manner shaped by community input, aligned with hospital resources, and guided by our objective to delivery high quality care with compassion, dignity and respect. This mission is achieved by identifying existing and future health needs in the community and addressing them through health initiatives, including education, prevention and screening programs.

Research was conducted by way of individual interviews with key members of community organizations throughout the greater Milton area and via community forums.  The findings of this important study will provide valuable direction to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton and many Milton community organizations in the months ahead. Read the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton's 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment and Implementation Strategy  here
