The Public Health Institute of Western MA was the lead consultant working with Community Health Solutions and Pioneer Valley Planning Commision to implement Community Health Needs Assessments for the ten hospitals and insurer of the Coalition of Western Massachusetts Hospitals. The Coalition is a partnership between ten non-profit hospitals/health plan in Western Massachusetts: Baystate Medical Center, Baystate Franklin Medical Center, Baystate Mary Lane Hospital, Baystate Noble Hospital, Baystate Wing Hospital, Cooley Dickinson Hospital, Holyoke Medical Center, Mercy Medical Center (a member of Sisters of Providence Health System), Shriners Hospitals for Children – Springfield, and Health New England. Below are links to the reports, which will be posted as they are approved by each hospital/insurer.
